Film Club: The Princess Bride

Here at last is a film that tells the truth – most of us hate the soppy bits in adventure films! Who doesn’t want to skip past the good-hearted hero and perky princess to the cunning villain and hero’s entertaining sidekicks? The Princess Bride takes apart the traditional damsel-in-distress story and puts it back together again, complete with a friendly giant, a dreaded pirate captain, a dashing swordsman seeking revenge, a cowardly prince and – eventually! – a brave hero and the beautiful maiden, in a film that quickly became thought of as a classic for kids of all ages – and for adults too!
