Just in its natural course, life is sufficiently hard. And if you can find the hope underneath that, that there is connectedness and some reason to it, then there’s some comfort in that. That’s what I’ve learned anyway. And I think that feeling is in the movie.” 11 of 16 found this interesting Interesting? YesNo |

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. Full summary » |  »

Story: 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, a middle-aged Irish burglar, and Beverly Penn (Jessica Brown Findlay), a young girl, who is dying. Written byJack

    If you have not read the book, use this review as a reason to eitherbypass the film initially and read the book first, or to understandthat the screenplay is a huge departure from the intended story.

    The novel Winter's Tale is a romance with a supernatural overtonebathed in a tribute to New York City if it could always remain in amystical state. The book is sometimes verbose, often funny, andheartfelt in it's depiction of love. The movie insults your intellectby ignoring the vast symbolism used in the book. Example: Time Travel -The book allows for you to understand certain characters have timetraveled, while the movie insists certain characters travel only tofollow others telling you that they are supernatural beings. It's NOTso. Here is exactly where the director really fowled the film.Deviating from the author's intent, turning the story into a devil'sagents interplay is awkward out of place. The devil was NEVER oncementioned or implied in the original story. Yes, some devices arenecessary in film to help the audience, but Pearly Soames purpose as aprotagonist in the film is reduced to silly. Furthermore Pearly'sreason for chasing Peter had nothing to do with Peter's love forBeverly. Pearly never met Beverly in the novel. Here is one morenon-spoiler as it too won't be found in the film. In the book, Pearly'spurpose for chasing Peter Lake began the moment he forced Peter Lakeinto his employ and Peter later turned a huge heist against Pearly.Pearly's gang was decimated for a time. From that day forward, Pearly'swill to kill Peter grew in every chase that left him empty handed.

    Being sold as a straight up romance or love story is almost a mistakebecause the film does try to encompass the much larger storysurrounding the love affair. From Peter Lake's horse which has a storyof his own to a wildly funny malapropian newspaper editor named CraigBinky. Other Characters such as Virginia Gamely were alteredridiculously. Virginia was from the Lake of the Coherees in the novel.In the film, she is just another New Yorker. This is where the filmfalls apart. The director's vain effort to include the other threadedstories inside the book are convoluted.

    When you use the same title as a book for a movie it's wise to make anhonest adaptation, otherwise change the name of the movie from the bookentirely to avoid comparisons entirely. Then follow the guide ofplacing in the credits, "based on the story Winter's Tale by MarkHelprin." Director Akiva Goldsman (also wrote the screenplay)zig-zagged across both these traditional paths and the story sufferedin his mash-up. Change a characters hair color, but don't change theirrole or destiny.

    In this case Winter's Tale isn't even a director's interpretation. Thebook weaves a subtle supernatural element that may be so vague that thedirector wanted to spell it out to moviegoers. In doing so, he dumbsdown the original story to the point it insults the audience, holdingtheir hand and telling them what to think as opposed to letting themoviegoer figure things out.

    Winter's Tale is condensed, filtered and sanitized of it's soul. Evenwithout having read the novel, evidence of awkward changes for thescreenplay dumb down the original subtle supernatural theme which wasironically as clear in it's message as it was abstract in it'sdelivery.

    As a romance film there are heartfelt moments and the chemistry betweenPeter Lake and Beverly Penn does have enough strength to bring a tearto some audience members. Collin Farrell's soft humanity is felt quiteoften too. Yet, except for a candid conversation among the two menPeter Lake and Isaac Penn which draws an intellectual laugh, there isno humor to break up the tension in the film. Yes, the contrast of thebook is once again worth noting. The book had meaningful characterswhich were lost in the movie. They were not a direct part of the lovestory, and as such were eliminated. Eliminating so many great elementsof the original story killed the journey Peter Lake would take youthrough. The cinematography alone in Winter's Tale was not enough topaint the fantastic picture of the magical New York City the authorintended as a character in the story. Without that fabric the mysticalworld Peter Lake and Beverly Penn exist is absent.

    Winter's Tale is a complex supernatural love story with too manyimportant characters to have fit into a short two or three hour film.It's not written in a manner that would translate into a part one andpart two series either. Perhaps it's best medium will one day be amini- series a network can allow to play out over five to eightepisodes. It's often said that the journey is the reward and the storyof Winter's Tale is a long journey that cannot be condensed. In thiscase, spotlighting one part of the journey is not fulfilling either.

    Let's just make one thing clear to anyone that has neither read thebook nor seen the movie. The love story in this film takes place in thefirst quarter of the novel. There are three remaining quarters to thestory that thread the love story of Peter Lake and Beverly Penn intothe overall journey, but their story is told early and ends early.Well, that's not entirely true. And yet it is. Now for all those cluesand a tease, don't you just wonder what a book that has three quartersmore to say – has to say? For my full review just search my name, LarsHindsley and you'll find DangerMans Lair.

    Directors making their feature-film debuts don't typically have theirpick of Hollywood's finest (and busiest) stars – unless they're AkivaGoldsman, that is. For his fantastical romance epic Winter's Tale, theOscar-winning screenwriter has corralled the likes of Russell Crowe,Jennifer Connelly, Colin Farrell and Eva Marie Saint: an accomplishedcast that would make many a more seasoned director envious. The troubleis that Winter's Tale never really comes together as Goldsman clearlywants it to: the writing is smart and occasionally very good, but thefilm flounders when it should soar, losing rather than gathering paceand tension as it goes on.

    The story – based on Mark Helprin's ponderous 1983 novel – followspetty thief Peter Lake (Farrell) from the early 1900s through to thepresent day. In 1916, Peter is suddenly declared persona non grata byPearly Soames (Russell Crowe), his frankly insane, literally demonicIrish thug of a mentor. While on the run, Peter encounters a mysteriouswhite horse that points him in the direction of the Penn mansion.Initially looking to steal himself something nice, Peter sets aside allthoughts of pilfering treasure from the Penns when he meets and swiftlyfalls in love with Beverly (Downton Abbey's Jessica Brown Findlay), thebeautiful, flame-haired mistress of the house who is slowly being eatenalive by consumption.

    It's all very romantic, or so we're told, with a supernatural elementfolded into the love story: Pearly becomes convinced that Peter isdestined to save a girl with titian hair, an action that would upsetthe teetering balance between good and evil. Indeed, Peter's burninglove winds up keeping him alive for over a century, until he meetssingle mom/super-journalist Virginia (Jennifer Connelly) and herdaughter in modern-day Manhattan. It soon becomes clear that fate,destiny and a whole lot of mystical mumbo-jumbo are at work here, andPeter will soon discover the healing and restorative powers of loveitself.

    To be fair, Winter's Tale is built upon a raft of quite interestingideas. It hints at, rather than belabours, the notion of good and eviltaking physical form: Pearly lurks through Manhattan, a gangster bytrade and a demon by nature. When he decides to confront Peter for goodand for ever, he's forced to fight on equal, mortal terms. It's afantasy universe absolutely begging to be expanded, a fiction thatcould be real and is all the more tantalising for it.

    But Goldsman, in juggling the various elements of his story, lets theopportunity slip him by, instead focusing on the love story in almostexcruciating detail – even though he never really creates a connectionbetween Peter and Beverly that rings true. Peter teaches Beverly how toescape her all-consuming fever by slowing her heart down, Beverlyexplains to Peter how she believes people rise to the stars to findtheir loved ones when they die – it's all intensely romantic, buthardly emotional. The film then flings a few more tropes andcomplications into the mix (Peter loses his memory, Peter winds uptravelling through the future into our present, love will conquer alletc.), without really stopping to explain just how it all hangstogether.

    At least Goldsman has pulled together a cast worth watching, even whenthe film he's constructed around them isn't quite worth their salt.Farrell broods prettily in his boy-band haircut, clearly too old forthe part but nonetheless playing it with great gusto. Paying Goldsmanback for A Beautiful Mind and Cinderella Man, Crowe marches through thesilliness of his raging, bonkers character with strange amounts of joy.Pearly is easily the film's best character, unless you count the oneplayed by another of Goldsman's Facebook friends (no spoilers, but thismovie star is no doubt grateful to Goldman for a script that earned himbucketfuls of acting cred many years ago).

    Swimming somewhere in the reams of quite lovely footage assembled byGoldsman and his cinematographer Caleb Deschanel, there's a great moviewith great ideas. Once in a while, it bursts through – in the shadowy,dank dungeon of a demon's lair, ruled by Lucifer himself; or the snow-swept sparkle of a moonlit night – but, more often than not, it turnsinto Winter's Tale: an emotionally distant romantic drama that goes forlush, sweeping depth but comes up curiously cold and myopic.

    If you don't believe in the stuff of destiny and miracles, then youmight as well not bother with 'Winter's Tale'. A magic-realist romancebased on Mark Helprin's 1983 bestselling novel of the same name, itspans present day Manhattan and early 20th century New York to tell alove story between a petty thief by the name of Peter Lake (ColinFarrell) and the daughter of a wealthy newspaper publisher namedBeverly Penn (Jessica Brown Findlay), the latter of which also happensto be dying from consumption.

    But before you think this is going to be some sappy melodrama a la aNicholas Sparks novel, acclaimed screenwriter Akiva Goldsman'sdirectorial debut actually has a lot more going for it.

    First, there is an Oliver Twist-twist (pardon the pun) to the tale.Peter's love for Beverly earns the consternation of the malevolentcrime boss Pearly Soames (Russell Crowe), who has raised Peter sinceboyhood as part of his criminal enterprise. It is not just Peter whotime- travels; rather, Pearly's blind pursuit of the one whom he thinkshas betrayed him also spans the century. Much as this is at its heart alove story, it never hurts to have a little action now – especiallywhen it's Farrell and Crowe playing the hunted and the hunterrespectively.

    Besides also being a minor gangster saga, there is also the inimitableelement of magic in the proceedings. It isn't just coincidence thatBeverly exclaims 'The sicker I become, the more clearly I can see thateverything is connected by light!', accompanied of course by some CGdazzle. Peter's ability to travel through the ages is also no fluke,not least for the fact that he rides a pretty spectacular lookingflying white horse with the name Athansor. Part of the mystery lies infinding out just who Peter is, seen at the start in present dayriffling through a box on the roof of New York's Grand Central station,mirrored in his own search for his true identity with the help ofJennifer Connelly's newspaper columnist.

    But it doesn't end there, and depending on your faith, this is eitherwhere it gets interesting or plain absurd. Heaven is depicted as aplace among the stars. Athansor turns out to be Peter's guardian angel- and not the only spirit animal walking the Earth we may add. WillSmith turns up as Lucifer, more 'Judge' though than anything else. Andperhaps most significantly, Peter discovers that he has some trulydivine powers, so much so that by the time it is all over, he hasbecome a Jesus figure. No matter the wistful or whimsical tone thatGoldsman tries to achieve, how much you buy into its motifs of life,death, rebirth and the enduring power of love will ultimately determineif the magical woo-woo will come off as hocus pocus or something muchmore meaningful.

    To his credit, Goldsman does try his best to make the fantasyenchanting. Every image that is meant to be adorned with magic comesoff looking as if it were a page out of a picture book – in particular,Beverly's abode looks like a mansion straight out of a Disney cartoonperched on the edge of a frozen lake. There is an otherworldly feel tothe entire telling, and like its title suggests, one cannot deny thatit does transport you to a live-action fairy tale world. And yetdespite displaying a heretofore unseen visual imagination, theAcademy-Award winning screenwriter of such acclaimed dramas like 'ABeautiful Mind' and 'Cinderella Man' disappoints by leaving out theweightier aspects of Helprin's novel.

    Most prominently, by fashioning it as a pretty romance, Goldsmanneglects the author's moral meditation on the meaning and purpose ofjustice. Helprin's prose was rich in portraying the industrialEdwardian era style of a mythic New York City, through which theinjustices of that Metropolis was vindicated with the promise ofredemption and salvation through death. These are difficult to portrayno doubt, but their omission leaves ultimately a watered down storythat works as a fairytale romance and little more.

    Nonetheless, Farrell and Findlay are never less than engaging leads,and between them share a sparkling (pun intended yet again) chemistrythat lights up the scene more than Goldsman's literal CG additions. Onhis own though, Farrell once again puts his roguish charm to good use,oozing sweet earnest sincerity in his performance of a bad boy who justwants a chance to be good again. He is also well-matched with Crowe'sglowering screen villain, whose imposing presence effortlessly commandsyour attention.

    Though far from the stuff we have come to expect from Goldsman,'Winter's Tale' still works as a time-travel fantasy romance thatespouses the hope that love be ageless and timeless. It might not bethe thoughtful adaptation fans of the book may be expecting, but thoselooking for a Valentine's Day trifle will find plenty to ogle at and bedelighted about. At the very least, Goldsman uncannily balances fantasyand realism, and even though it isn't quite magical, it promises to bea moving tale of enduring love that will sweep you off your feet.

    My wife and I watched "Winter's Tale" as our pre-Valentine movie datethis year. I initially thought it would be an interpretation ofShakespeare's last known play. However as the film unfolded, it wasclear that this was not the case.

    The story starts in 1895, and goes all the way up to the present time,all set in New York City. However, the main love story happens in 1916.Peter Lake is a thief who running from his former mentor in crime,Pearly Soames. Beverly Penn is a rich young heiress with flaming redhair, dying of consumption. With Pearly in hot pursuit, Peter andBeverly meet and fall in love, till one's death did them part.

    The story does not end there, and instead fast forwards to 2014. Anamnesic man aimlessly draws a figure of a lady with long red haireveryday on the sidewalk of a park with chalk. One day, he meets Abby,a little girl who was dying of cancer. With the help of Abby's mother,he discovers who he really is, and how he can fulfill his life'smiracle. But he has to contend with the forces of evil which intend toconfound his plans.

    Colin Farrell plays Peter with his well-known and well-liked Irishrogue charm. The beautiful Jessica Brown Findlay plays Beverly with somuch verve and magic. We were feeling some kind of a "Titanic"-likedoomed lovers vibe as we watched the two together, which made Colinlook a little too old for his role. In any case, he still managed topull it off creditably well somehow, despite noting that his hairstylekept on changing its look as the camera shifts within the same scene.

    As the devilish Pearly, Russell Crowe again shows off his actingmettle, this time as the main ruthless antagonist. His violent angerwould sometimes get some Interesting yet subtle CG help to make it moredemonic. He would also have a couple of well-written scenes with asurprise appearance by Will Smith, who makes an uncredited cameo asJudge Lucifer himself.

    Like Crowe and Smith, other Oscar-pedigreed actors make notablesupporting turns. William Hurt plays Beverly's protective father IsaacPenn. Graham Greene plays Peter's sage adviser on the streets. JenniferConnely plays Virginia, Abby's distraught mother. And the ever-glamorous Ms. Eva Marie Saint plays a centenarian who knew of Peter andBeverly's love affair. Even with her short scenes, Ms. Saint gives amost memorable, touching and dignified performance.

    The performances by two child actresses, Mckayla Twiggs (as Beverly'sspunky sister Willa) and Ripley Sobo (as the cancer-stricken Abby),were also remarkably good.

    Since we went in without knowing anything about the story, we were verysurprised about the fantasy aspect of this film. When we saw that whitehorse for the first time, we thought it was odd. But when we witnessedthe fantastic things it could do, it was amazing. The CG rendering ofthese special effects with the horse were mesmerizing, very well-done.

    The way the story was told back and forth in time can get a littleconfusing at first. The plot is a little too convoluted for a regularlove story. But of course, this is far from a regular love story. AkivaGoldsman (who won an Oscar for writing "A Beautiful Mind") adapts anovel by Mark Helprin. This is also his directorial debut for a featurefilm. I have not read the book so I cannot comment on how faithful hewas in his adaptation. He did well though to tell a complicated talethat spans more than a century and with supernatural elements, in sucha confident yet charming manner, without making everything look absurd.Most audiences would be fascinated and enchanted by its bittersweetmagic. 8/10.

    As the reviews indicate either you'll love it or hate it. I loved it,my wife hated it. Quite a turnaround considering I wanted to seeRobocop, but it was her turn to pick. Slow and confusing in thebeginning but picked up speed after the first encounter of Peter andBeverly. The Characters were immediately likable and the two childactresses were captivating. Russell Crowe was great as Demi-DemonPearly Soames. The visuals were terrific. It kind of made me think ofTitanic with Demons, Angels and even a Pegasus replacing the Boat. Allunder the winter NYC backdrop. Pay attention to the dialogue becausethere were several of those "oh wow – that's what that meant" momentslater on.

    I haven't read the novel but watched the movie directly. Its the movieabout real-love, destiny and true soul-mate. All in our life is amystery..whatever today's science was considered as Art earlier. Themovie which is based upon the novel tried to depict the few above saidthings.

    If you love real-love, destiny/fate you will certainly love this movie.This is not a normal movie, a unique one focuses more on love-destiny.The movie tend to answer few of the following: Why this world, why weare here, what about stars, what about angels/demons etc.

    The world is fully of mystery/surprises. Be prepared to re-live yourlife. Thanks.

    I feel like I have just seen a film that could have been truly amazing.It has one of the best romantic couples of the last decade. There weretimes when I felt I was aboard "Titanic" while watching the two leadsfall in love at first sight. Here's one scene where we went beyond someof the truly flabbergasting choices Hollywood sometimes makes. Farrellis truly convincing as the man who can't get what he wants and needs.He finds the girl of his dreams, only to…

    Gorgeously photographed, lovingly scored, and almost perfectly cast…Akiva Goldsman has come up with a loving tribute to the power of love,fate, and some other cosmic forces. There are various expressions oflove, as one sees man meet his soul mate, parents opt for desperatechoices, sisters strengthen a bond, and some unknown forces send usbeautiful creatures to help become permanent additions to the tapestryof the heavens.

    We follow our hero as he gives a woman the opportunity to enjoy blissof all kinds in her short stay in this world, with the help of awonderful Pegasus lookalike, he manages to avoid the forces of evil whoattempt to destroy him (a bit of a problem here) because it lessens thebeauty of the other plot twists. Maybe it is because this is a filmwhere love is so powerful and beautifully depicted that the villainseems superfluous, and it doesn't help that Crowe goes a bit too farplaying whoever he might be. We want him off the screen and yearn tosee the other incarnations of pure love and devotion. Connelly is aslovely as ever, Eva Marie Saint is pure warmth, the children are pureinnocence, and the two romantic leads just make us wish their lovelasted even more.

    It all begins at the end of the 19th Century, and it reaches its climaxin the 21st Century. Is it a time travel fantasy? It's never fullyexplained, but it wants us to believe that love and goodness areeternal and worth fighting for. Are we recycling ourselves or just partof a chain that allows us chances to reach our dreams and perfection?It doesn't seem to matter and it's never fully explained. Maybe it's onthe pages of the novel this is based on, but it's been almost 30+ yearssince I felt the kind of romantic magic that Reeves and Seymour put onthe screen in "Somewhere in Time" (another dramatic romance with timetravel overtones).

    The magic is in the leads and the look of the film. Something is eithermissing or just a bit overshadowed by the magic of the look, sound, andacting in the movie. Maybe there is a much longer version which feelsmore cohesive and more logical. Maybe it is meant to be felt. There ispowerful images in the depiction of the late 19th century. Hollywoodfilms are getting so much better at showing us what people looked likeback then. I was afraid the magic would disappear in the contemporaryscenes, but here is where the acting becomes more powerful as Farrelldiscovers what his true purpose in life is, and there is that scene inthe frozen lake. I thought "Frozen" was incredible animation, but thereis nothing to improve on capturing the beauty of a chilly winter night.The silver and blues will envelope your soul like few images ever havein cinema.

    Go and swoon with the leads, and I'm hoping there is more to thisfeature. Maybe, like "Once Upon a Time in America" we'll discover whatthis diamond looks like once the work is all finished. This filmdemands that Mr. Akiva invest a bit more time trying to give us what hemight have originally intended.

    Just came back from one of the worst movies I've ever watched. Really!I very rarely criticize filmmakers, as I respect their hard work andmostly, when I do not like a certain movie, it is very possible that Ido not like it since it's, how to say it, "too artistic for me". That'snot the case this time. The movie is endowed with nice visual effectsand the soundtrack isn't bad either. It takes place in NYC, so thescenery is beautiful as always. The problem is not even with the acting– It simply has A LOUSY STORY – and this comes from a man who likesromantic and Valentine's Day-suitable movies. The theater was packed atthe beginning but more than a few has left us during the break and youcouldn't miss hearing complaints from other people at the end. It isvery possible that my wife is the only one at that screening who foundthis movie likable… I've always known there's something special inher.
