Perfect pandemic movie for you and your family: The Princess Bride
by Bob Schwartz
I’ve scoured the streaming services and my own collection for a movie that would serve as medicine for the pandemic.
I don’t just want to be distracted, though that is helpful. I want to be lightened and leavened, as if lifted in a hot air balloon on a sunny day, floating over pleasing and fascinating lands and seas.
Maybe no movie has every contained such a right measure of engaging plot, wit and charm that so appeals to viewers of all ages. Need pandemic medicine? Watch The Princess Bride.
