I'm not sure why this movie did so poorly in theaters -- bad release timing? critics who came in expecting one thing and got another? -- but it's far more enjoyable than Rotten Tomatoes might lead one to believe. It was hyped as a romance, which it is, but it's more about the power of love in general across generations and how we don't always get the miracles we want, but we sometimes get miracles nonetheless. The performances are moving and the visuals are beautiful. As is so often the case, it's not the book, but it has merits of its own.

Colin Farrell and Jessica Brown Findlay ~ with their beautifully expressive eyes, subtle gestures,
soft tones of voice and dialogue - make this movie an engaging, emotionally worthwhile journey.
The gorgeous cinematography, the atmospheric settings, the striking characters and circumstances,
the evocative, spine-tingling score ~ all combine to make a lyrical and haunting film.

In viewing, it might serve you well to be something of a romantic. Able to let yourself be
swept away into an imaginative premise and picturesque settings. If you know the Mark Helprin book,
don't let internal comparisons distract, seeking that unachievable perfection-in-translation.
Just let the movie simply be what it is. Consider both have something meaningful to offer.

This is magical realism, a from-the-heart type of film. Akiva Goldsman's admitted "wink and a nod" to
those who know what it is to have loved and lost and continued on. For as anyone knows who has been there
~ or imagined being there: There's no such thing as feeling you've lost once you have truly, deeply loved.
You carry such abiding love with you every day of your life ~ into eternity if there be one.

Love begins for Beverly Penn and Peter Lake at first sight. Though from separate worlds in upbringing,
their mutual need for something true ~ and amazement at it finally arriving just as all else threatens ~
puts them immediately on equal terms where wonder and desire are concerned. Even as dark forces
conspire to destroy them, they dare to take what joy is there to be had.

Keep in mind, this film is predominantly about Love. Capital L. Love in the highest sense of the word.

Allegory defined: the expression by means of symbolic fictional figures and actions of truths or generalizations about human existence. Winter's Tale is a magical, fantastical allegory about good versus evil and humanity's greatest weapon--that weapon is that human beings are basically good. If you like movies that are moving, if you like movies in which the actors bring their characters fully to life, if you like movies that attempt to inspire rather than assault your eyes and ears with frenetic action and earsplitting sound, if you like movies which treasure soaring imagination above mindless summer blockbusters, if you like movies which you will remember, then this movie is for you. I will watch this movie again and again. I will watch it many times not because I simply enjoyed it or for sheer entertainment but because it made me feel connected to people and all of life.

This movie was just so dreamy. Jessica brown Findlay lived up to and exceeded expectations following her delightful work on downton Abby. Colin Farrell was unexpectedly charming and heroic. I truthfully didn't expect to love the story as much as I did. I haven't read the book but was merely attracted by the fairy tale nature of the trailers. It is most definitely a fantasy and does not adhere to any level of being "real life" so go in with eyes open. And how much fun was Will smith? That was unexpected. Please enjoy this movie for what it brings to the table. It is 2 hours of time well spent and you will leave with a warmer heart.

Winter's Tale - a truly magical, uplifting, emotional piece of art.

The directing is wonderfully done accompanied with a musical score which makes it special and really shine all throughout the movie.

Script is full of metaphors, symbolism with huge amount of detail and depth in it, thought-provoking ideas, it is beautiful and unique, which is quite rare in films nowdays.

There is plenty to see for the mainstream audience, as well as people who have different perspective, so it works on both levels, which really surprised me.

The acting is a strong part and everyone did a great job to portray interesting and multi-layered characters, especially the chemistry between Colin Farrell and Jessica Brown-Findlay was wonderful to watch, and they fit the roles very well.

Cinematography is also a very important part of the movie, the film visually looks amazing and it helped to create a believable New York, with all of the different settings and themes - major and small.

There are some issues here and there, but it is a 'Tale' and i think this motion picture represents the title perfectly.

The only real problem is the marketing - trailer, while it is really good, in my opinion, it barely represents the actual movie - posters, they look really cheap and similar to every romance film, therefore people might have been mistaken and not wanting to see this movie in theaters, although i can see now that the cover of Blu-Ray looks great. So, don't judge a product by it's marketing.

Overall, i loved the film, every second of it. Can't wait to see it again! A must own on Blu-Ray/DVD!

Blu-Ray review:

Winter's Tale on Blu-Ray looks exceptionally well.
