The Green Knight

Fantasy Drama Adventure


 

A re-telling of the medieval story of Sir Gawain and the Green Knight.

"The Green Knight" is a visually stunning production dripping with medieval symbolism, rich set and costume design and restrained performances. Following our bumbling protagonist from point A to point B is stress-inducing as he seems to make every wrong decision possible, but his naivete ensures he remains relatable throughout. This film is an ode to honouring your word, finding your bravest self, and it will leave you pondering its ambiguities long after watching. It's only a game.
