A Knight's Tale (PG)
@ Newcastle CastleBook Now
22 April 2017
To celebrate St George’s Day weekend, we are screening this 2001 medieval comedy which famously boasts a contemporary rock soundtrack.
Loosely inspired by the England documented in ‘The Canterbury Tales’, ‘A Knight’s Tale’ tells the story of William (Heath Ledger) a young squire with a talent for jousting. When his master dies somewhat prematurely William sets off with his friends, and an unknown writer called Chaucer (Paul Bettany). Chaucer agrees to forge documents that will ‘prove’ William’s status as a knight and hence his eligibility to enter jousting competitions.
Please note: Film screenings take place in the Great Hall of the Castle Keep. Due to the nature of this building, it is unfortunately not accessible to wheelchair users.
