Description

A swashbuckling tale of adventure that feels dragged out of the mists of time, the new A24 film stars Dev Patel and is based on one of the most famous and important works of English literature: Sir Gawain and the Green Knight, a 14th-century Arthurian tale penned in Middle English that has inspired centuries of study, contemplation, and scholarly bickering. 

Vox film critic Alissa Wilkinson explains why you should spend time in Gawain’s world this weekend. The Green Knight is in select theaters starting July 30.
