From wikipedia.org:

Winter's Tale (released in the United Kingdom as A New York Winter's Tale) is a 2014 American supernatural drama film based on the 1983 novel of the same name by Mark Helprin. The film is written and directed by Akiva Goldsman (in his directorial debut) and stars Colin Farrell, Jessica Brown Findlay, Jennifer Connelly, Russell Crowe, and Will Smith. The film was panned by critics and was a bomb at the box office.

In 1895, a young immigrant couple is refused entry into Manhattan because they have consumption. When their infant son is not allowed entry to the country without them, the couple decide to place him in a model sailboat named "City of Justice" to float there safely.

In 1916, the infant boy has grown up to be Peter Lake, a thief who was raised by a demon posing as the gangster Pearly Soames. But when Peter decides to leave Pearly's gang and the only life he's known, Pearly is infuriated, and has his gang hunt down Peter. Peter is rescued by a mysterious white horse, his guardian angel. Although Peter hopes to move to Florida and come back in the summer, the horse encourages him to steal from one last mansion. The mansion is the home of Beverly Penn, a young woman dying of tuberculosis. While her publisher father Isaac and younger sister Willa go out, feverish Beverly takes a cold bath. She goes downstairs to play the piano while Peter is trying to unlock the safe. Peter discovers Beverly and she makes him a cup of tea. They tell each other about their stories and fall in love.

Pearly uncovers Peter's "escape" and orders his men to Beverly's home, believing she is to be Peter's "miracle," who will tip the balance between good and evil toward good, permanently. While preparing to leave with his mysterious white horse, Peter goes back to see Beverly one more time and is almost killed by Pearly. Peter rescues Beverly and they escape to the Lake of the Coheeries (where Pearly, bound to the five boroughs of New York, cannot follow). Peter meets Beverly's family at their summer home. Isaac is at first skeptical of Peter, but later accepts him when he fixes an out-of-control furnace and saves both Isaac and the house. While on a walk, Beverly explains to Peter that everyone is born with a miracle inside and when she dies, she will become a star but his miracle is still inside him.

Pearly goes to see the devil, Lucifer, who is also referred to as "Judge," asking to gain access to Peter at Beverly's lake home; the Judge refuses. So, Pearly calls in a debt owed to him by one of Lucifer's angels and orders the angel to poison Beverly. At a ball, the man ordered to poison Beverly disguises himself as a servant and poisons Beverly's drink. When she returns home, Peter sneaks up to the tent where she sleeps and they make love. Afterwards, as Beverly tries to tell Peter something, she suddenly dies. Peter carries her to the greenhouse, where Willa made an "enchanted" bed (like Snow White's), which could save a princess from dying. With a kiss, Peter attempts to resuscitate Beverly, but is too late and he weeps over her body.

During the funeral, Willa gives a distraught Peter a sprig of baby's breath from Beverly's coffin. As Peter and Horse are about to leave, Pearly and his men surround them on the Brooklyn Bridge. Peter orders Horse to leave (to save himself) and Pearly gives Peter four head-butts and pushes him off the bridge. Peter miraculously survives, but wanders around the city with amnesia for a century, drawing chalk art of a red-headed girl on the pavements.

A century later - in 2014, Peter bumps into a girl named Abby and meets her mother, Virginia Gamely. He rediscovers the "City of Justice" plaque from the toy sailboat his parents placed him in as a baby to get to New York. Pearly discovers that Peter did not die by falling off the Brooklyn Bridge and is still alive. Peter then discovers the Theatre of the Coheeries, founded by Isaac who has dedicated it to Beverly. He goes to the library where Virginia works, who helps him get his memory back. While there, he meets Willa, who is grown up and became Virginia's boss for her newspaper.

When they discover Peter's location, Pearly again orders his men to go kill him. When he is at Virginia's apartment for dinner, her daughter Abby has a seizure and Peter learns that Abby has cancer and realizes that Abby is Peter's "miracle." He convinces Virginia he can save Abby. When Pearly and his men arrive, Peter and Virginia flee to the rooftop with Abby, where they find the horse waiting to rescue them. The horse flies them to the Lake of the Coheeries, but Pearly has become mortal to pursue Peter. Just as Peter, Virginia, and Abby are within sight of the greenhouse, Pearly and his men arrive. Horse flies away and lands hard on the ice, which breaks, and Pearly's men drown. Peter and Pearly engage in a fistfight and Peter stabs Pearly with the "City of Justice" plaque. Pearly turns to ice and dies.

Peter and Virginia desperately take Abby and lay her gently on the bed in the greenhouse, but lose hope, even after Peter lays the flower given to him by Willa. Abby then comes back to life and Peter brings both Virginia and Abby home with a brighter future ahead. The film ends with Peter and the horse, thundering through the streets of Manhattan, suddenly leaping into the sky and flying into the night sky to become stars and to reunite with Beverly as Virginia, Abby, and Willa look up.

From tribuneindia.com:

The story is centered on petty thief Peter Lake (Colin Farrell) who finds his way into the house of a consumptive Beverly Penn (Jessica Brown Findlay) but beautiful woman who has never been kissed on the mouth. The charmer (her description of him) hero soon sees to that despite her somewhat protective dad (William Hurt) and a sweet liaison ensues with lyrical overtones like "magic is everywhere around, you just have to look" And that's what we experience right through its 118-minute duration.

There's fantasy seen through the flying white horse Althamsor who saves Lake from some tight situations. Time also flies by, like the white horse, and decades later our hero is never out of trouble. Comely librarian Virginia Gamely (Jennifer Connelly) meets Lake who is now being pursued by a grim and ruthless Pearly Soames (Russell Crowe) who is baying for his blood. But he battles on bravely like some marathon man.
