Synopsis

A Knight's Tale: The spirit of films like BRAVEHEART and GLADIATOR collide with todays hottest young stars as Australias HEATH LEDGER rocks you in the action packed, rags to riches medieval adventure A KNIGHTS TALE. Ledger is William Thatcher, a peasant with dreams of champion jousting. When the opportunity strikes for him to feign royal descent and compete in the famed sport, he discovers the thrill of winning, the glory of knighthood, the love of a forbidden maiden and terrible danger in the form of the vile Count Adhemar (played by Rufus Sewell from DARK CITY). With a funky modern take on medieval times, a great soundtrack and the best of todays fresh young talent, youll find all the fun, suspense and adventure you need in A KNIGHTS TALE. The Patriot: Academy Award winner MEL GIBSON gives one of his most remarkable performances as legendary war hero Benjamin Martin, who's forced to take up arms again when his family is torn apart by the savage British redcoats during the American Revolution. He recruits a band of reluctant volunteers, including his idealistic young son (TWO HANDS star Heath Ledger in his first international blockbuster), and the ragtag band of warriors begin a daring and dangerous assault on the British forces in a fight for freedom and revenge. From the producer/director team behind hits like INDEPENDENCE DAY, STARGATE and the writer of SAVING PRIVATE RYAN, this thunderous epic is one of the year's most powerful and highly acclaimed movie events Lords Of Dogtown: Anyone who grew up in Southern California will talk with both nostalgia and frustration about the periodic summers of drought in which the oppressive heat is exacerbated by a shortage of its antidote fresh water. In 1975, a clan of scruffy, rebellious teens found a way to turn this dearth to their advantage, using the sloping bowl of empty suburban swimming pools to create a new underground sport skateboarding. The development, explosion, and corporate co-opting of this now ubiquitous sport was the subject of Stacy Peralta's acclaimed 2002 documentary, Dogtown And Z-Boys. Peralta, one of the original skaters who came to be known as the Z-Boys, has penned this dramatised account of his own story, a kinetic and gripping tale with dramatic turns reflective of the extreme crests and falls of those concrete waves.
