The Final Season - Week 1: The Princess Bride

The Princess Bride.jpg

Rob Reiner, 1987

The Princess Bride may not appear in an AFI list of American movies, but it's multi-generational staying power makes it a classic. Director Rob Reiner manages to capture both the earnestness and humor of William Goldman's book by the same name, slyly adding the grandfather/grandson characters to capture the meta-story magic of the novel.
