Academy Award®--winning screenwriter Akiva Goldsman (A Beautiful Mind) writes, produces and makes his directorial debut with this timeless supernatural love story based on Mark Helprin's acclaimed novel. Set in a mythic New York City and spanning more than a century, WINTER'S TALE is about miracles, crossed destinies, and the age-old battle between good and evil. Peter Lake (Colin Farrell -- Saving Mr. Banks) is a master thief, who never expected to have his own heart stolen by the beautiful Beverly Penn (Jessica Brown Findlay -- Downton Abbey). But their love is star-crossed: she burns with a deadly form of consumption, and Peter has been marked for a much more violent death by his one-time mentor, the demonic Pearly Soames (Russell Crowe). Peter desperately tries to save his one true love, across time, against the forces of darkness, even as Pearly does everything in his power to take him down -- winner take all and loser be damned. What Peter needs is a miracle, but only time will tell if he can find one.
