The Princess Bride is a swashbuckling fantasy adventure directed by Rob Reiner from a scenario by William Goldman (adapted from his own novel). And a smoldering love tale as well as a farcical comedy and is it satire? 15th of May, 2020.
Prince Fredrick of Carpathia and the Countess Elizabeth "Lizzie" Van Gorp are meeting for the first time at a masquerade ball. She is beautiful but he does not find her attractive. However, when she is taken hostage by gypsies and he must rescue her, they become friends and then more than friends. He learns that she has been living in Spain with her father, the king, who is ill. Her mother died years ago leaving her to take care of her father and brother. Prince Fredrick decides to go back home to help Lizzie's father and then try to win her heart. But can a young man compete with a knight who has been married seven times?
Now, The Princess Bride is a very satirical movie. It makes fun of many things including: royalty, romance, sword fights, pirates, and even George Bush. So is this film a parody or not? I think so. It is mostly a parodic film but there are some serious parts too.
Also, The Princess Bride was originally written as a novel.
The Britannia Award was bestowed upon her by the British Academy of Film and Television Arts (BAFTA) in 2007. In acknowledgment of her contributions to the cinema business, she earned the Santa Barbara International Film Festival's Modern Master (Montecito) Award in 2009.
She is only the second actress after Judy Garland to receive this award.
Rob Reiner directed and co-produced The Princess Bride, a 1987 American fantasy adventure comedy film starring Cary Elwes, Robin Wright, Mandy Patinkin, Chris Sarandon, Wallace Shawn, Andre the Giant, and Christopher Guest. The film has now become a cult classic. It was followed by two sequels: 1994's The Second Prince and 2001's The Third Man.
Elwes told TV Guide in 1998 that he did not consider The Princess Bride to be a movie because it was not made for money but rather for entertainment purposes only. He added that he would like to see a sequel written by William Goldman called "The Wedding Bride". No such thing ever happened but Elwes still hopes they will one day make it as a movie.
Goldman wrote the screenplay for The Princess Bride based on a story by Goldman and Reiner. The film is set in the fictional country of Floridia where all the characters are married to other people. When the main character, Westley, a pirate captain, kills his wife, Sophia, he is given a choice by the king: marry her quickly so he can go free or wait a year during which time he will be punished. Westley chooses the later option despite knowing that she is actually his mother. After hearing this news, Sophia's father, King Buttercup (Chris Sarandon), decides to find another bride for her son since she is dead.
