20th Century Studios The Last Duel is the next epic period action-drama from director & 4 time Oscar-nominee Sir Ridley Scott and stars Emmy Winner Jodie Comer (Killing Eve, Free Guy), two time Academy Award Nominee Adam Driver (Patterson, Marriage Story) and reunites the Academy Award-winning duo of Matt Damon & Ben Affleck to who star + wrote the screenplay together for the first time since Good Will Hunting, plus this time bringing in a third writer, Academy Award nominee Nicole Holofcener (Enough Said, Can You Ever Forgive Me?) to tell this incredible true story from the third female perspective.
The Last Duel is a cinematic and thought-provoking drama set in the midst of the Hundred Years War 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. Carrouges is a respected knight known for his bravery and skill on the battlefield. Le Gris is a Norman squire whose intelligence and eloquence make him one of the most admired nobles in the court. 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 gruelling duel to the death, places the fate of all three in God's hands.
