About A New York Winter's Tale
Set in a mythical New York City where magic happens and love carries across decades, this is a fairytale-like drama bogged down by leaden dialogue and an overdose of sentiment. Winsome heiress Beverly Pen (Jessica Brown Findlay) suffers from tuberculosis and yearns for some excitement in her life. One night she catches dashing, seemingly immortal petty thief Peter Lake (Colin Farrell) trying to rob her family's mansion and despite the circumstances they have an immediate emotional connection. But Peter is being hunted by Pearly Soames (Russell Crowe), a soldier for the Devil who runs a financial corporation with spies everywhere. Decades later Peter is still in New York and while he courts a reporter (Jennifer Connelly), he hasn't forgotten Beverly.
