I think Leelee Sobieski did a marvelous job in this movie, portraying Joan of Arc as she really was, confident, intelligent, courageous, and inspiring. The medieval castles from the East Czech Republic added to understanding the times that Joan lived in. I thought Chad Willett did a marvelous job as Jean De Metz, Joan's follower and friend. The battle scene of the taking of Les Tourelles at Orleans was very well done. I liked the pomp and music of the coronation of Charles VII. I think they botched the way Joan was captured, however, that's not how it happened at all. A drawbridge was raised prematurely outside the city of Compiegne, and Joan was trapped from escaping her Burgundian enemies.
