Sparks fly between Downton Abbey star Jessica Brown Findlay and Colin Farrell in the cinematic Valentine's Day treat Winter's Tale, in theaters now, and the pair display their offscreen chemistry in their ET interview! Plus, does Jennifer Connelly believe in miracles? Watch the video...
True love, crossed destinies, miracles and the age-old battle between good and evil are front and center in the whimsical Winter's Tale, which casts Colin as Peter Lake, a master thief, who never expected to have his own heart stolen by the beautiful Beverly Penn (played by Findlay). But their love is star-crossed: she burns with a deadly form of consumption, and Peter has been marked for a much more violent death by his one-time mentor, the demonic Pearly Soames (Russell Crowe). Peter desperately tries to save his one true love, across time, against the forces of darkness, even as Pearly does everything in his power to take him down -- winner take all and loser be damned. What Peter needs is a miracle, but only time will tell if he can find one.
Winter's Tale marks the directorial debut of Academy Award-winning screenwriter Akiva Goldsman (A Beautiful Mind), who also wrote the screenplay, and is based on Mark Helprin's acclaimed novel.
