Movie Info

An epic fantasy adventure based on the timeless Arthurian legend, THE GREEN KNIGHT tells the story of Sir Gawain (Dev Patel), 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. Gawain contends with ghosts, giants, thieves, and schemers in what becomes a deeper journey to define his character and prove his worth in the eyes of his family and kingdom by facing the ultimate challenger. From visionary filmmaker David Lowery comes a fresh and bold spin on a classic tale from the knights of the round table.

  • Rather than tease a particular reading out of Gawain's journey, the beguiling work functions as a meditation on the search for meaning and direction itself.

    July 27, 2021 | Full Review…
  • A movie that's both of its time and splendidly out of step with it, an act of necromancy in a CGI world.

    July 26, 2021 | Full Review…
  • Led by Dev Patel at his most magnetic, this is a fantastical adventure in a genre all of its own.

    July 26, 2021 | Full Review…
  • Lowery's unforgettable adaptation refuses to do the math for us, but it's all the more thrilling for how it insists that the only true value of a thing in this world is that which we find in it for ourselves.

    July 26, 2021 | Rating: A- | Full Review…
  • Those expecting an Arthurian sword-and-sandals battle epic will be sorely disappointed. Instead, Lowery has delivered a dense, sensual, almost dream-like tale of chivalry, magic, temptation and transformation.

    July 26, 2021 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…
  • The movie's more ruminative than exuberant. It's also fully invested in making its own kind of magic, on its own time.

  • The Green Knight is a piece of art, a pristine wonder of storytelling being brought to life, and leaving us to think about what it all meant.

    July 27, 2021 | Rating: 4/4 | Full Review…
  • Those willing to surrender to its talking animals, to its fevered surrealness, and to its Old World myth-weaving will be thoroughly rewarded with one of the year's best films.
