The Green Knight Rated 15

The Green Knight

Dir. David Lowery. USA, 2021. 2h 5m. Starring Dev Patel, Alicia Vikander, Joel Edgerton, Barry Keoghan, Sarita Choudhury, Ralph Ineson.

Based on a timeless Arthurian legend, reckless knight Sir Gawain embarks on a daring journey to confront the mythical Green Knight. He must contend with ghosts, giants, and thieves in an eerie quest to prove his honour. The Knights of the Round table gets a fresh twist in this atmospheric adaptation by acclaimed director David Lowery (A Ghost Story, The Old Man and the Gun).

‘What a strange and peculiarly powerful film this is…a rich and wild fantasy’ ★★★★★ Mark Kermode, The Observer

'The casting of Patel is a stroke of genius. He softens Gawain’s arrogance and deepens his soul, so that the audience can’t help but root for his success.’ ★★★★★ Clarisse Loughery, The Independent
