Synopsis

Inspired by "The Canterbury Tales," as well as the early life of William Marshall (later First Earl of Pembroke), this is the story of William, a young squire with a gift for jousting. After his master dies suddenly, the squire hits the road with his cohorts Roland and Wat. On the journey, they stumble across an unknown writer, Chaucer. William, lacking a proper pedigree, convinces Chaucer to forge genealogy documents that will pass him off as a knight. With his newly-minted history in hand, the young man sets out to prove himself a worthy knight at the country's jousting competition, and finds romance along the way.

A Knight's Tale (8.7)

What a wonderful film. I watched this with my mother, whom absolutely hates Sci-Fi and fairy tale stories, she refuses to watch them. One thing she hates even more so than fiction is the medieval era. She normally watches biography films or films loosely based off of true events. I finally got her to agree to watch this movie with me. Now, I know A Knight's Tale isn't strictly fiction, it has some accurate information. The director at least tried to make it accurate but entertaining at the same time, it is a movie after all.

Having said that, I would still classify this movie as a fairy tale, and there is nothing wrong with that. Normally my mother would instantly cry no, pleading, "This will be a waste of time". Nonetheless, we watched it together and her reaction was one of excitement and wonder. She expressed, "Never in a million years I thought I would have liked that". My mom is now open to more movie suggestions.

M.H.

The best film that you should not like

In reference to all the other reviews, yes this is pretty inaccurate, yes the music selection should not make sense, yes the plot is so formula and predictable it sounds like it was called in, that you should hate it...and yet I think it is a great film. It is fiction so it does not need to be accurate although there is some historical basis. As far as the music if you read the director comments he chose the music to give the same feeling of music that the people of that time felt for their music. And as far as the plot just because they use a formula that is predictable this film is a example being able to do it well. Even though the main message is to be true to yourself with honor and don't limit yourself ( I know how sappy that sounds) it is still nice to see it done with some style. So if you give this movie a chance I hope you like it as much as I did even though I shouldn't.

Heath's Tale

A Knight's Tale features Heath Ledger as a young man trying to change his stars. When the knight he is a squire for literally drops dead, he stands in for him at a tournament. The ball only rolls faster from there. Heath and his merry men become famous at excelling at tournaments, hopefully they won't be infamous!

Laughter, great music and much fun all contained in this movie!
