Ladyhawke is an enchanting tale of a beauty (Michelle Pfeiffer), a knight (Rutger Hauer) – and a pickpocket known as the Mouse (Matthew Broderick). Once the knight and the lady were lovers. Now the curse of an evil bishop (John Wood) keeps them "always together, eternally apart." By day she is a hawk, by night he is a wolf. To end the evil spell, the knight vows to break into the bishop's stronghold, with help from the Mouse. Directed by Richard Donner and photographed by three-time Academy Award®-winner Vittorio Storaro, Ladyhawke "is the most congenial spot for happy ever aftering since Camelot" (Rita Kempley, The Washington Post).

What Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that Ladyhawke is a dopey 1985 romantic fantasy that will probably bore most kids and sorely try the patience of most grown-ups. Expect the slashing and impaling common to cinematic portrayals of medieval violence. Blood drips from a victim's mouth but is otherwise scarce. Several people are stabbed or pierced with arrows. One falls though ice into a wintry pond. There is a drunk priest and some mild profanity ("hell" and "damn").
