Winter’s Tale (2014)

Director:

Akiva Goldsman

Starring:

Colin Farrell

Jessica Brown Findlay

Russell Crowe

Plot:

A burglar falls for an heiress as she dies in his arms. When he learns that he has the gift of reincarnation, he sets out to save her.

Review:

Sex killed her so never have sex kids. That is what this movie taught me. Her dad told her, but no she had to go and bone Colin Farrell. It’s not like an angel slipped something in her drink that caused her heart to beat too fast and it was really the combination of the two, plus the fact that she had consumption.

There seems to be a lot of mythology that isn’t explained well in the movie. There’s a horse with wings, he somehow time travels when he’s pushed off a bridge, there’s angels and demons but you’re just expected to know how and why.

There’s this amazing romantic feel to the movie but there isn’t a romantic happy ending. There are lots of fantasy elements but I wouldn’t categorize it as a fantasy. It’s a little bit of a lot of things.

Will Smith is in the movie, as Lucifer, and he’s one of the best parts. I might actually bump it up half a star because of him.

I didn’t expect to like this movie and I wouldn’t say I loved it, but it was a nice surprise. I really enjoyed the ending and didn’t see it coming. I cried, of course.

3.75/5
