A Knight’s Tale stars Heath Ledger as squire William Thatcher, who is an assistant to a champion jouster who sadly dies during a competition. As nobody has eaten for days, William decides to take his place and after winning decides that he wants to carry on with the competitions. Add in a chance meeting with Geoffrey Chaucer (Paul Bettany) and a love interest for Will and you can imagine the outcome is going to be a mix of comedy and upset.
The soundtrack of popular rock music was a really weird choice but works extremely well and I have to admit that the movie definitely brought a few tears to my eyes. This movie flies along for its two and a bit hours and one you need to watch and I can recommend adding to your collection.
Rating: an easy 5 out of 5 stars!
