Drama: A late 14th century rape is told from the perspectives of the woman, her husband, and the man accused of the crime.

It's the late 14th century and knight Jean de Carrouges (MATT DAMON) is about to duel squire Jacques Le Gris (ADAM DRIVER) to the death to resolve the matter of whether Jacques raped Jean's wife, Marguerite (JODIE COMER). The story then rewinds and is told from their separate perspectives beginning with the two men fighting in battles for the king. Jacques then falls in with the king's cousin, Count Pierre d'Alenšon (BEN AFFLECK), and becomes his debt collector. Broke and needing to engage in battle to earn a living, Jean agrees to marry Marguerite to obtain her dowry.

But when he learns that land that was supposed to be bequeathed to him instead was taken by Pierre who then gave that to Jacques as a reward, that doesn't sit well with Jean. That and other related matters come to a head when Marguerite ends up alone -- after her mother-in-law, Nicole (HARRIET WALKER), leaves with everyone else for the day -- thus allowing Jacques -- who thinks he's fallen in love with Marguerite -- to show up and rape her.

With that matter then ending up in court, we see the events leading up to that -- as told by Jean, Jacques, and Marguerite -- as well as the duel to the death that will decide the fate of all involved.

Older teens might have some interest, especially if they're fans of anyone in the cast or movies set in medieval times.

I have subscribed to ScreenIt for more than a decade. I check in every week to take advantage of their amazing services. Not only does their site provide a glimpse of exactly what content a movie offers, I've found the “Our Take” reviews and ratings for each movie to be right on the money every single time. I've referred dozens of friends to this service because my #1 resource for deciding whether or not to show a movie to my kids, or to see one myself, is ScreenIt.com!

I signed up to get Screen It weekly reviews a long time ago, when my kids were young and I wanted to know more about movies before we went to a theater or rented. Now one child is in law school, other in undergraduate, and I still read the weekly Screen Its! It helps me know what my husband and I want to see or rent, and what to have waiting at home that we all will enjoy when my "kids" come home. I depend on Screen It reviews. They usually just present the facts and let me decide if the movie is appropriate or of interest for my family and me. Thank you for providing that service, Screen It!

I have 4 children who are now in college. I signed up for Screen It when my children were pre-teenagers. Often my children would ask to see a movie with a friend and I wished I could preview the movie prior to giving permission. A friend told me about ScreenIt.com and I found it to be the next best thing to previewing a movie. The amount of violence, sexual content, or language were always concerns for me and my husband as we raised innocent kids with morals. We constantly fought the peer pressure our kids received to see films that in our opinion were questionable. With the evidence we received at Screen It, our kids couldn't even fight us when we felt a film may have been inappropriate for them to watch. Thank you, Screen It. Continue to make this helpful service available to everyone, but especially the young parents.

Screenit.com is an amazing resource for parents, educators, church groups or anyone who wants to make an informed decision whether a movie is suitable for their viewing. The reviews and content descriptions are so detailed I am mystified how the reviewers can put them together.

I love screen It! I don't know what I would do without it. It is well worth the membership. Before we take our son to the movies we check it out on screen it first. Thank you SO much for making it. Keep up the good work & keep 'em coming!!!
