New York City is subsumed in arctic winds, dark nights, and white lights, its life unfolds, for it is an extraordinary hive of the imagination, the greatest house ever built, and nothing exists that can check its vitality. One night in winter, Peter Lake (Colin Farrell), orphan and master-mechanic, attempts to rob a fortress-like mansion on the Upper West Side. Though he thinks the house is empty, the daughter of the house is home. Thus begins the love between Peter, a middle-aged Irish burglar, and Beverly Penn (Jessica Brown Findlay), a young girl, who is dying.

  • I Loved this movie! I thought it was excellent in every way. I really have no idea what the critics were looking at. Russell Crowe was amazing, and gave in my humble opinion, an Oscar performance. His facial expressions conveyed the character completely. I thought the Whole cast was just perfect. The dialog was great. Kudos to Akiva Goldman! He made a beautiful movie visually and conceptually.Just enough fantasy. Russell Crowe and Will Smith were great counterpoint to each other and the rest of the film. Loved Eva Marie Saint- what a pro she is – Smooth as silk. I have watched this movie 3 times. It just gets better each time. I haven’t read the book, but now want to . The movie stands on it’s own as unique timely and thought provoking. There are not many movies I want to see a second time let alone own- I do want this one in my movie library!
