Review: A New York Winter's Tale

A story of good and evil, A New York Winter's Tale is set in a supernatural New York city where miracles exist and are given altruistically to others. Master thief Peter Lake (Colin Farrell) is living aimlessly, trying to avoid his nemesis Pearly Soames (Russell Crowe), a willing servant of evil, out to prevent every miracle from taking place. Peter meets terminally ill Beverley Penn (fantastically played by Jessica Brown-Findlay) while breaking into her house, and finds himself drawn to her. But is it her that his miracle is meant for? Based on Mark Helprin's novel, the story tackles ideas about life with mythical creatures and beautiful fairytale, and while real life may not be quite as magical, the story touches on themes such as our search for meaning in our lives and questions what we were born to achieve. It has an interesting focus on good and evil; altruism and selfishness; the selflessness giving of miracles and the selfish desire to see others suffer. A New York Winters Tale is released in the UK on 21 February.
