A different take on a classic story that sees the Green Knight challenge the court: any knight who is able to land a blow on him will win his green axe. However, that knight must receive an equal blow a year’s hence. Gawain beheads him but the Knight rides away holding his own head.
David Lowery's riff on Arthurian legend is full of profound truth and awe-inspiring spectacle, Gawain is a deeply flawed man who is struggling to find a path for himself and Patel captures this internal strife with a confidence that is marvellous to see. This is an absorbing adventure that casts a fantastical spell. Unique and unforgettable.
