With its delightful mix of swashbuckling, romance and comedy, The Princess Bride is one of the most beloved movies ever made—and a picture-perfect addition to this summer’s cottagecore series at the Hot Docs Cinema. Director Rob Reiner’s wicked parody of the age-old damsel-in-distress story turned Robin Wright and Cary Elwes into stars with their portrayal of star-crossed lovers Buttercup and Westley. They are joined by a powerhouse ensemble cast of unforgettable characters, including the gentle giant Fezzik (André the Giant), the sultry Inigo Montoya (Mandy Patinkin) and the coldly villainous six-fingered man (Christopher Guest). Its pastoral settings, vintage bridal attire and gauzy nostalgic vibes have made The Princess Bride a cottagecore touchstone. Relive the big-screen magic of a cult classic.
