Featuring powerhouses such as Russell Crowe, Colin Farrell, and Jessica Brown Findlay, Akiva Goldman's "Winter's Tale" will have audiences swooning next Valentine's Day.
Jessica Brown Findlay in Another Period Piece.
Jessica Brown Findlay is best known for her role as Lady Sybil Branson (née Crawley) on Emmy award-winning Downton Abbey. As Beverly Penn in Winter's Tale, we get the pleasure of seeing her in period dress, again. Plus, this dancer turned actress gets to show off some of her ballet training. This is the genre where she truly shines.
Peter Lake's (Colin Farrell) timeline is all over, giving us the chance to see New York City as it develops and changes. It also allows for cool alternate realities, which reminds us that time isn't a strict progression of cause and effect...
Akiva Goldsman wrote and directed this adaptation of the novel by Mark Helprin. Goldman also wrote A Beautiful Mind, Cinderella Man, and The Da Vinci Code movies, so he knows what he's doing when it comes to adaptations.
Hans Zimmer's Score
Hans Zimmer has brought us some of the most iconic film scores, and he does it again with Winter's Tale. Keep your ears open for this film's musical motif.
Romantic Fantasy Genre
More and more films are going the route of romantic fantasy, which can be more fun than the romantic comedy meet-cute storyline. The element of fantasy keeps even the oldest of love stories feeling fresh and updated.
