Peter Lake (Colin Farrell) was an orphan child taken in by one of the servants of the devil and trained to be a master thief. When he breaks into to a rich Manhattan home to steal their goods, he suddenly finds he is not alone. The daughter, Beverly Penn (Jessica Brown Findlay) who is very ill is home alone. But when Peter lays eyes on her, he falls deeply for her and so begins the decade long love story of Peter and Beverly spanning generations.

This is a fairy tale story of good versus evil, magic and miracles, but most of all a love story. Epically spread over a hundred years or so, we get to watch this touching beautiful tale that really impressed me. With great actors in great roles, this is an epic love story that is sure to touch the heard of the darkest cynic. It’s well crafted, told slowly and unfolding piece by piece one step at a time. It will mislead you, break your heart, and bring tears to your eyes. Monumental storytelling at it’s finest, Colin Farrell is awesome. The relationship between Russell Crowe’s character and that of Will Smith will surprise you. This is an epic tale worthy of Princess Bride. This is simply a wonderful story, and one that I would really have hated to miss.
