Home Entertainment and Village Roadshow Pictures. Marking the directorial debut of Academy Award®-winning screenwriter Akiva Goldsman (“A Beautiful Mind”), “Winter’s Tale” is the perfect love story.

“Winter’s Tale” is produced by Akiva Goldsman, who also wrote the screenplay, Marc Platt (“Drive”), Michael Tadross (“Sherlock Holmes”) and Tony Allard (Showtime’s “The Baby Dance”), with executive producers Kerry Foster and Bruce Berman.


Set in a mythic New York City and spanning more than a century, “Winter’s Tale” is a story of miracles, crossed destinies and the age-old battle between good and evil.

Peter Lake (Farrell) is a master thief who never expected to have his own heart stolen by the beautiful Beverly Penn (Brown Findlay). 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 (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.
