The Princess Bride (1987)
“Fencing, fighting, torture, revenge, giants, monsters, chases, escapes, true love, miracles” — this fairy tale classic has it all. Starring Robin Wright, Cary Elwes, Mandy Patinkin, and Andre the Giant, The Princess Bride shows how even the most difficult obstacles can’t stop true love. The film is all at once comical, adventurous, and delightful. “Inconceivable!”
Big Hero 6 (2014)
This is an animated film about a teenage robotics genius who activates a robot that befriends him during a time of crisis. While most robots are seen as cold and incapable of human emotions, Baymax is loveable, huggable and endearing. It’s a tough story about growing up but serves to reinforce the idea that friendship is forever.
