Movie Info

Anyone who's ever longed for the world to be a more accepting place is sure to identify with this documentary tracing the life journey of fourteen year old Colin Taylor, a bullied schoolboy from a broken home who finds acceptance among the members of a San Diego-based medieval reenactment and role playing group known as the Kingdom of Terre Neuve. Taylor's parents divorced when he was just three, leaving him with no one to look up to than his older brother Corwin. Now, as Colin practices archery and begins the battle training that will eventually allow him to become a true "man at arms," he also takes the first steps towards regaining contact with the father he never knew.more

Audience Reviews for Drakmar: A Vassal's Journey

I've got a soft spot for movies that celebrate the outcast/geek/nerd (probably because I AM one) and this is a great one, especially because the main subject is so darn likeable. Unlike a lot of these types of films which poke some subtle fun at the protagonists, you can tell that the filmmakers weren't out to ridicule Collin and his family and friends. This really was a documentary about a young boy struggling to fit in, who uses his fascination with all things medieval to escape the pain and loneliness the "real world" affords him. There's definitely an argument that this kind of escapism may not be healthy, but this is probably the first film I've seen in this "geek documentary" genre that shows that this kind of community can be a godsend for troubled kids. The scenes with Collin's mentor Scott showing him how to make a medieval leather pouch and Collin's subsequent displaying of the finished product really conveyed that sense of community and purpose that goes beyond just merely playing a role in a game. Be sure to watch the 2007 update after the film to see how Collin has really blossomed (and grown!!!) Excellent flick!
