The Princess Bride (1987)
If this movie taught us anything about true love, it’s that if it's worth it, don’t let a bunch of giant rats stand in your way. Also, when the going gets real tough, just let Billy Crystal help you out.
Part of the ongoing series The Works – Angelo Badalamenti is the provocative, darkly sexy Secretary, starring the ever so creepy-cool James Spader as a fetish-stricken lawyer who finds sadistic solace when he hires Maggie Gyllenhaal. Psh, Christian Grey who?
