"Winter's Tale" tells a fantasy love tale of a thief and a very sick woman who fall in love but have to fight time itself to find another again. The supernatural drama was written and directed by Akiva Goldsman and based on the 1983 novel of the same name by Mar Helprin. "Winter's Tale" opened in the United States on Valentine's Day, February 14, 2014.

In "Winter's Tale," it's 1916 and Peter Lake (Colin Farrell) is doing his usual, breaking into homes to steal valuables. One robbery doesn't go as planned when he encounters a tenant in a home. That girl, Beverly (Jessica Brown Findlay), instead of being afraid, is interestingly kind to him and the two soon fall in love. Their time however is short as she is dying of tuberculosis and he is being hunted by insane gangster Pearly Soames (Russell Crowe).

Just as Peter's life is saved by a mystical white horse named Anthansor, he finds himself 100 years in the future, in modern day Manhattan. With no memory of who he is, Peter is tasked with figuring out why he's still on this earth, something new friend Virginia (Jennifer Connolly) helps with, and try his best to reunite with his one true love, Beverly.

"Winter's Tale" hits theaters already buzzing about other great films including "The Lego Movie, "Gimme Shelter," "I, Frankenstein," "Ride Along," "Jack Ryan: Shadow Recruit, "The Wolf of Wall Street, "The Secret Life of Walter Mitty, "Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues" "Her," "American Hustle," "Saving Mr. Banks," August: Osage County, "The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug," "Dallas Buyers Club," "Philomena, "Inside Llewyn Davis," "Out of the Furnace," "12 Years a Slave," and "Frozen".

    Peter Lake: "It squeaks."
    Beverly Penn: "You have a gun."
    Peter Lake: "I was just robbing the place, you know."

    Peter Lake: "No, it isn't."
    Beverly Penn: "Well then, I suppose the polite thing to do would be to offer you a cup of tea."

    When Peter enters the home of Beverly's, he doesn't expect to confront the tenant, just rob the place. He also doesn't expect her kindness, especially given his initial motive.
