Friendship. Romance. Family. These are the three areas Ethan Nichtern delves into in his book The Dharma of the Princess Bride. Thirty years after The Princess Bride made its appearance in contemporary consciousness, Ethan Nichtern hosts a special screening of the film at the Rubin, preceded by a conversation about his book, which explores what the film teaches us about relationships and Buddhist values.

In The Dharma of the Princess Bride, Ethan Nichtern investigates the indelible characters―Westley, Fezzik, Vizzini, Count Rugen, Princess Buttercup, and others from Rob Reiner’s perennially popular film―while drawing in lessons from his own life and his work as a meditation teacher.

“Ethan Nichtern has written a book filled with important insights, humility, and wonderful humor. A rare combination.”
—Christopher Guest, aka The Six-Fingered Man
