Storyline

New York City is subsumed in arctic winds, dark nights, and white lights, its life unfolds, for it is an extraordinary hive of the imagination, the greatest house ever built, and nothing exists that can check its vitality. One night in winter, Peter Lake (Colin Farrell), orphan and master-mechanic, attempts to rob a fortress-like mansion on the Upper West Side. Though he thinks the house is empty, the daughter of the house is home. Thus begins the love between Peter, an Irish burglar in his early 20's, and Beverly Penn (Jessica Brown Findlay), a young girl, who is dying. Written by Jack

Quotes

[first lines]
Beverly Penn: [narrating] What if, once upon a time, there were no stars in the sky at all? What if the stars are not what we think? What if the light from afar doesn't come from the rays of distant suns, but from our wings as we turn into angels? Destiny calls to each of us. And there is a world behind the world where we are all connected, all part of a great and moving plan. Magic is everywhere around us. You just have to look. Look. Look closely. For even time and distance are not what they ...

If you like romance, poetry and magic, you can't miss it
26 February 2014 | by See all my reviews

One of the most romantic movies in years. Pure poetry and magic. It gets deep in your heart. It takes you to places you've never gone. Time doesn't have a meaning, does it? Good and evil have a balance. which one will run. Both, none? I give it a 9 out of 10.

Set in a mythic New York City and spanning more than a century, "Winter's Tale" is about miracles, crossed destinies, and the age-old battle between good and evil. The film marks the directorial debut of Academy Award®-winning screenwriter Akiva Goldsman ("A Beautiful Mind"), and stars Colin Farrel... If you like romance, poetry and magic, you can't miss it.
