About the film:
Originally scheduled to premiere at the cancelled SXSW 2020. An epic fantasy adventure based on the timeless Arthurian legend, The Green Knight tells the story of Sir Gawain, King Arthur’s reckless and headstrong nephew, who embarks on a daring quest to confront the eponymous Green Knight, a gigantic emerald-skinned stranger and tester of men.
“a misty, lavishly scaled medieval odyssey, full of ghosts and magic and hallucinations and wandering”
– Owen Gleiberman for Variety
