Winter’s Tale offers a gripping combination of magic, miracle, young love, and gritty good vs. evil plot lines. It’s just what you need to guarantee the feel-good feeling as you finish watching the movie some night soon.
Using words to describe it is a challenge. Winter’s Tale (2014, rated PG-13, 118 minutes) creates the characters and then rushes to convergence at the end: Beverly (Jessica Brown Findlay) imparts her miracle to Peter (Colin Farrell); Peter fights evil to create goodness; the girl will live; the magic horse prances into the sky; and love conquers all.
This is a tale about a world as we would like it to be, and the kind of love we all wish everyone could have. It’s proof that the slightest breath of angels can make magic.
