Rollin' Reels - Ladyhawke

Saturday, April 29 at 10:30am to 4:30pm

Roland Park Branch, Meeting Room 5108 Roland Avenue, Baltimore, MD 21210

To celebrate our annual Fairy Tale Festival, we are showing the 1985 cult classic Ladyhawke. As Phillipe the Mouse says to the knight Navarre, "Sir, the truth is, I talk to God all the time, and, no offense, but He never mentioned you."

The feature will run continuously throughout the day and is shown with subtitles/closed captioning. Snacks permitted.

In medieval France, knight Rutger Hauer and lady fair Michelle Pfeiffer both run afoul of evil-bishop John Wood. Through the auspices of bishop's confessor Leo McKern, Hauer and Pfeiffer are placed under a curse. During the night, Hauer takes the form of a wolf, while Pfeiffer assumes the form of a hawk by day. The two lovers can only meet one another as humans at dawn and dusk. The only mortal in a position to rescue Hauer and Pfeiffer from their fate is nebbishy pickpocket Matthew Broderick, who acts as liaison between the lovers. With the help of the guilt-ridden McKern -- and a convenient solar eclipse -- Broderick endeavors to set things aright. (Author: Hal Erickson)
