Academy Award®-winning screenwriter Akiva Goldsman writes, produces and makes his directorial debut with this timeless supernatural fantasy based on Mark Helprin's best-selling novel. Set in a mythic New York City and spanning more than a century, it is a story of miracles, crossed destinies and the age-old battle between good and evil. Colin Farrell plays a turn-of-the-century Irish thief who encounters a terminally ill heiress while robbing her house. Falling irrevocably in love with her, his only option is to discover a way to stop time and bring her back from death. In addition to the sweeping, romantic story, Akiva Goldsman's passion project features a remarkable roster of acting talent including Downton Abbey's Jessica Brown Findlay and Oscar® winners Jennifer Connelly, William Hurt, Eva Marie Saint and Russell Crowe.

Ratings and Reviews
Critics Consensus: Winter's Tale tries to retain the grandiose sweep of its source novel, but fails to fill it in with characters worth rooting for or a sensible plot.
Disappointing book-based fantasy-drama has heavy themes.
