The Princess Bride

Read the book, then watch the movie! Sunday July 30th at 1pm, Upstate Films and Oblong Books co-present this screening, followed by a book discussion.
Adapted by William Goldman from his novel of the same name, it’s not difficult to see why The Princess Bride has become a classic in the years since its 1987 release. Heroic fantasies, we often feel, should be lighter than air, hot as dragon fire, and fast as a sword in the sunlight. And that’s what we get from this epic delight — along with an ample supply of humor and foolery.
