(2021) (Dev Patel, Alicia Vikander) (R)
- QUICK TAKE:
- Drama: King Arthur's nephew embarks on a journey to find a mysterious creature that will test every aspect of his being.
Gawain (DEV PATEL) is the adult nephew of King Arthur (SEAN HARRIS), but unlike the knights of the round table, he has no great story to tell about himself. That changes when a mysterious stranger, the Green Knight (RALPH INESON), shows up with a challenge that any blow delivered to him shall be returned in equal measure one year hence. Gawain volunteers, and using his uncle's sword, he beheads the creature. But that doesn't kill the Green Knight who picks up his head and rides off.
Now a year later and the subject of legends about his feat, Gawain leaves behind his lover, Essel (ALICIA VIKANKER), and sets off on a long journey to find the Green Knight and prove his mettle. Along the way, he must contend with his doubts and insecurities as well as encounters with thieves, a ghost, giants, and a couple that has set their respective sights on him.
