Light snow, misty fog, and falling ash blend in the opening scenes of The Green Knight, setting a surreal tone for what’s to come. You can feel the chill and smell the air. Immediately, you feel outside yourself, far from daily concerns, set for an experience that's unlike anything else in nearby theaters. That feeling won't subside for over two hours.  

Director David Lowery (A Ghost Story) has adapted the 14th century chivalric romance Sir Gawain and the Green Knight into one of the most memorable films of the year, a fascinating swirl of masculinity, temptation, heroism, and religion. Fans will be drawn to this mesmerizing journey guided by Lowery’s incredibly poetic eye, career-best work from Dev Patel, and an artistic sensibility that transports audiences to another world. More than any movie in a long time, I would have immediately watched it again, but it’s also a film that really strengthens in memory, swirling around your brain like the falling flakes of the opening scenes.

Sir Gawain (Dev Patel) is the nephew of King Arthur (Sean Harris) and Queen Guinevere (Kate Dickie), and the son of Morgan Le Fay (Sarita Choudhury), accused by some in the village of witchcraft. After a brief opening scene with his lover (Alicia Vikander) and mother, Gawain is off to a lavish Christmas banquet with the King and Queen, at which he is surprised to be asked to sit by their side.

This is all really prologue to “The Green Knight,” the bulk of which consists of Sir Gawain’s journey to the Green Chapel to meet his fate. It becomes not so much a story of a physical journey but a mental and emotional one, a series of challenges before a young man faces his ultimate fate. The Green Knight is scary, sexy, and strange in ways that American films are rarely allowed to be. We're all just sitting in that banquet hall, listening to the story requested by King Arthur, told by a master storyteller.—

“Lowery dives all the way in and viewers are rewarded with a sumptuous feast for the eyes and the soul.”—Detroit News

“…cinema visionary David Lowery delivers a modern movie masterpiece about a wannabe knight (an Oscar worthy Dev Patel) who must fight monsters he can and cannot see. It's a unique and unforgettable film that ranks with the year's best.”—ABC News
