A Knight’s Tale

Wow! I really enjoyed this movie! Before a couple of weeks ago, I had not seen the movie since it came out. I remembered parts but not all of it. It stars Heath Ledger as Sir William Thatcher, Rufus Sewell as Count Adhemar, Shannyn Sossamon as Lady Jocelyn, Paul Bettany as Geoffrey, Laura Fraser as Kate, Mark Addy as Roland, Alan Tudyk as Wat Falhurst, Berenice Bejo as Christiana, Scott Handy as Germaine, James Purefoy as Sir Thomas, & Christopher Cazenove as John Thatcher. It’s rated PG-13 for violence & sex-related discussions. William is a squire who loves jousting & is very good at it. His “master” dies & he suddenly has no job…so he goes off with his 2 friends Roland & Wat. They meet this guy who gives William a fake family history so he can pull of knighthood. Since he’s good at jousting, he makes money which he needs. William then becomes Sir Ulrich von Lichtenstein. He has to keep up this act if he wants to joust because only men from noble or royal families competed in this sport. He falls in love with Lady Jocelyn during his travels. The rest of the movie is about him trying to win her over & how he does it is very sweet! You’ll have to see the movie to find out how he does it though because I’m not one to spoil endings. Enjoy!
