“From visionary filmmaker David Lowery comes a fresh and bold twist on a classic tale about the Knights of the Round Table.” This is how A24 defines his new movie, ‘The Green Knight’. This is the new proposal from the most important indie producer of the moment, responsible for jewels such as ‘Midsommar’, ‘Hereditary’ or even Joaquin Phoenix’s new project after ‘Joker’.
This is the new foray into Lowery’s cinema after ‘The Green Knight full movie‘ and his last before filming ‘Peter Pan & Wendy’, a film whose progress has let us see little, but enough to know that we want more, especially thanks to that careful aesthetic, mixed with a high level of terror, violence and darkness that could place the film among the must-see of every lover of the genre.
‘The Green Knight’ tells the story of Sir Gawain (Dev Patel), King Arthur’s most reckless and stubborn nephew, who will embark on a daring adventure to confront the Green Knight (Green Knight), a gigantic and strange being who is feeds on men. Gawain will compete against ghosts, giants, thieves and conspirators in what will become a profound journey to define his character and prove his worth in the eyes of his family and his kingdom.
It is a film adaptation and / or reinterpretation of what in Spain we know as ‘Sir Gawain and the Green Knight’, a metric romance from the end of the 14th century that consists of four poems. Along with Patel, the cast of this interesting film is completed by well-known faces such as Alicia Vikander, Joel Edgerton, Barry Keoghan and Ralph Ineson. ‘The Green Knight’ will hit theaters in the United States on May 29.
