"The Princess Bride is a damn near perfect movie, and contains one of
the greatest sword fights of all time, some of the best onscreen
chemistry of any love story, and a stellar blend of comedy, action, and
romance that is hard to find anywhere else. But… let’s talk about
Buttercup. The world’s most beautiful woman. But also so much more.
Although she is the titular character (even though most of the action
centers on stopping the marriage that would make her an actual Princess
Bride—more on that in a bit), she’s often overlooked in discussions
about the movie; she rarely gets the recognition she deserves for being
a well-crafted female character in a male-dominated story."

The name of the story is "A Sound of Thunder".
It was written by Ray Bradbury. You're welcome.
