“[A] sumptuous, ragged and inventive adaptation of the anonymous 14th-century chivalric romance.” –A.O. Scott, The New York Times
A sprawling fantasy adventure based on the 14th-century epic poem in Arthurian legend, The Green Knight tells the story of Sir Gawain (Dev Patel), the reckless and headstrong nephew of King Arthur (Sean Harris) and son to Morgan le Fay (Sarita Choudhury). After the eponymous Green Knight (Ralph Ineson), a gigantic emerald-skinned stranger and tester of men, comes to Camelot offering a challenge, the young knight embarks on a daring quest to confront him.
Gawain contends with ghosts, giants, thieves, and schemers in what becomes a deeply introspective journey to define his character and prove his worth — to both his family and his kingdom — by facing his fate. Also starring Alicia Vikander and Joel Edgerton, the latest from director David Lowery is a fresh and bold spin on a classic tale from the Knights of the Round Table.
