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 everaftering since Camelot" (Rita Kempley, The Washington Post ).
