Set in 1799, 'Sleepy Hollow' stars Johnny Depp as Ichabod Crane, an earnest police constable committed to new, scientific methods of investigating crime. His rational approach to uncovering the truth, however, faces a bizarre test when he investigates a string of murders apparently committed by a headless horseman. Katrina Van Tassel (Christina Ricci), the most beautiful young woman in Sleepy Hollow, may hold the key to this terrifying mystery, but Ichabod must tread cautiously in this isolated community, especially around the strapping young Brom Van Brunt (Casper Van Dien), who considers Katrina his own. Miranda Richardson and Michael Gambon star as Katrina's parents, well-to-do and influental members of the community.
