The true story of a woman who defied a nation and made history.

From 20th Century Studios comes “The Last Duel,” visionary filmmaker Ridley Scott’s gripping tale of betrayal and vengeance set against the brutality of 14th century France. The historical epic is a cinematic and thought-provoking drama that explores the ubiquitous power of men, the frailty of justice and the strength and courage of one woman willing to stand alone in the service of truth. Based on actual events, the film unravels long-held assumptions about France’s last sanctioned duel between Jean de Carrouges and Jacques Le Gris, two friends turned bitter rivals. When Carrouges’ wife, Marguerite, is viciously assaulted by Le Gris, a charge he denies, she refuses to stay silent, stepping forward to accuse her attacker, an act of bravery and defiance that puts her life in jeopardy. The ensuing trial by combat, a grueling duel to the death, places the fate of all three in God’s hands.

Oscar winner Ridley Scott returns to the swords & sandals days of the 1300’s with a much more intimate story of friendship, betrayal and ultimately empowerment. Sweeping countrysides and brutal battles shine under Scott’s lens, while Damon, Driver and Comer devour every frame almost effortlessly. What could be a simple ‘he said, she said’ story evolves into a much heartier exploration of every character’s motion and motive, and how every choice can be interpreted in vastly different ways.
