Somerset House Film4 Summer Screen: The Princess Bride

It’s inconceivable that you won’t want to join for Rob Reiner’s classic romp starring a young Robyn Wright as the princess bride.

Certificate PG
Duration 98 mins
Film starts approximately 21.00

Join Somerset House for the most exciting, the most romantic, the most hilarious, the most fantastical, the most beautiful, the most handsome, the most hair-raising, the most heartbreaking, the most joyful and the most beloved action-packed fairy-tale love-story adventure ever put on film.

They say the course of true love never did run smooth and that’s definitely the case here, as cruelly-separated lovers Westley and Buttercup make a number of dubious allegiances and take on all manner of foes in order to find their way back together again.

Along the way we’ll meet Fezzik the giant, the Spanish swordsman Inigo Montoya and some rodents of unusual size, all while negotiating the Fire Swamp and the Pit of Despair and learning the true identity of the Dread Pirate Roberts.

Whether you’re see the The Princess Bride for the first time, revisiting a teenage favourite, or introducing it to a new generation, director Rob Reiner’s classic romp hasn’t lost an ounce of its charm since it became an instant favourite in 1987. Can it be that you still want more? Well…’as you wish’!
