“Hello. My name is Inigo Montoya. You killed my father. Prepare to die.”

Ingo Montoya, The Princess Bride

Fairytales are supposed to be retold and revisited over and over. Happily, HOME are offering the chance to do just that as part of their A Very 80s Christmas season. Rob Reiner’s now classic 1987 postmodern fairytale, A Princess Bride, should prove to be an ideal winter warmer. This magical tale of swashbuckling swordsmen, dread pirates and Andre the Giant screens on the 17th, 18th and 19th of December.
