Dev Patel leads an outstanding cast in acclaimed director David Lowery’s high fantasy drama from A24 Films, The Green Knight.
Lowery’s new film is based on the 14th-century tale of Sir Gawain and the Green Knight, an Arthurian legend that sees a knight (Patel) accept a challenge from a monstrous green knight to strike them with their sword, and in a year, the green knight would return the blow.
We can see that plot point conveyed in the trailer for the film but what happens next is a mystery.
As the year passes, Patel’s character experiences numerous weird, wonderful, and magical things, presumably haunted by the impending returning of the favour by the mysterious green knight.
The brutal and disturbing imagery is always juxtaposed with some stunning visuals of the high fantasy variety, which we can see in the trailer below.
Furthermore, the film features an outstanding supporting cast that includes Alicia Vikander, Joel Edgerton, Barry Keoghan, and Sean Harris.
The Green Knight is due for release on 30 July 2021.
