On Friday I went to see Winter’s Tale, playing Colin Farrell and Jessica Brown Findlay. When Peter Lake, a professional burglar enters a rich man’s house in Manhattan, he finds that his life will drastically change when he meets Beverly, the daughter and falls completely in love with her. When the ailing young girl dies in his arms, Peter finds that he has the gift of reincarnation. With that, he is determined to save the woman who captured his heart.
Winter’s Tale is a beautiful story of love, connection, and purpose. It’s one of those stories that that captures your imagination while giving you a new perspective on life. And in Winter’s Tale, the theme was paramount: That every human being is important; that we’re all connected to one another; that we all have a purpose; that we all have a miracle in our lives, which I especially liked.
I found out that the movie is based on the book by the same title by Mark Helprin. I went over and bought the book and have just started reading it. So far, I’m enjoying it. It’s a big book but I know it’ll be worth it.
Tell me about your recent movie experiences!
