The Bridge of San Luis Rey is a 2004 drama film directed by Mary McGuckian and featuring an ensemble cast of Americanmarker and international actors. It is based on Thornton Wilder's novel of the same name. The film was released in 2004 in Spainmarker and 2005 in the U.S. and abroad. Despite praise for its costume design, the film was poorly received by critics.

Background and production

The film and novel are very loosely based on the life of Micaela Villegas (1748—1819), a famous Peruvian entertainer known as La Perichole, whose life was also the inspiration for the novella Le Carrosse du Saint-Sacrement by Prosper Mérimée, an opéra bouffe, La Périchole by Jacques Offenbach, Jean Renoir’s 1953 film Le Carrosse d'or (The Golden Coach), and two earlier film versions: a 1929 silent version, The Bridge of San Luis Rey (1929) starring Lili Damita, and a 1944 version, The Bridge of San Luis Rey starring Lynn Bari, Francis Lederer, Akim Tamiroff, and Alla Nazimova.

The 2004 film was shot on location in Málaga, Andalucíamarker, and Toledo, Castilla-La Mancha, Spainmarker. It is the only one of the three versions made on location, and the only one to use the novel's original, shocking ending.
