Mawage. Mawage is what bwings us togeder tooday. Or rather, it’s what brings us together this month, as we celebrate the real-life fairytale wedding of Lady Markle of Los Angeles and her ginger prince by revisiting this classic story of undying love, mistaken identities, and truly impressive swordplay. Follow along with the kid from The Wonder Years as dashing Westley (Cary Elwes) goes on a quest to win back his true love Buttercup (Robin Wright) from the clutches of a band of petty criminals and the schemes of odious Prince Humperdinck (Chris Sarandon). Along the way, The Princess Bride features many inconceivable twists and turns, a host of memorable supporting characters, and some (but not too many) kissing parts.
Cast: Cary Elwes, Robin Wright, Mandy Patinkin, Wallace Shawn
