Is there a direction and meaning in lives beyond the individuals own will? Thornton Wilder Academy Award winners F. Murray Abraham, Robert DeNiro, and Kathy Bates lead the all-star cast of The Bridge of Saint Luis Rey, a gripping drama based on Thornton Wilde's Pulitzer Prize winning novel. The film tells the story of five strangers whose lives are simultaneously taken when a towering rope bridge collapses in 18th century Peru. Moved by the deaths he witnessed, a friar (Gabriel Byrne) begins an investigation into the lives and divine forces that bound these individuals fatefully together.

Rotten Tomatoes® Score

Critics Consensus: Despite an all-star cast and some impressive visuals, The Bridge of San Luis Rey is a lifeless, slow-going adaptation of Thornton Wilder's classic novel.
