A burglar with the gift of reincarnation sets out to save a heiress in A New York Winter’s Tale, released at the Showcase in Bargeddie on Friday.

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, he discovers the daughter of the house is home.

Thus begins the love between Peter, a middle-aged Irish burglar, and Beverly Penn (Downton Abbey’s Jessica Brown Findlay), a young girl, who is dying.

When he learns that he has the gift of reincarnation, he sets out to save her.

Based on the novel A City in Winter by Mark Helprin, it is adapted by Akiva Goldsman who makes his big screen directorial debut after many years as a producer.

A New York Winter’s Tale is rated 12A and runs 118 minutes.
