Event Overview

USA 1987 / 98 mins / Cert: PG

Director: Rob Reiner

Adapted by William Goldman from his 1973 novel of the same name, this cult classic tells the story of a farmhand named Westley, accompanied by companions befriended along the way, who must rescue his true love Princess Buttercup from the odious Prince Humperdinck. The film effectively preserves the novel’s narrative style by presenting the story as a book being read by a grandfather to his sick grandson.
