Dev Patel felt his character in “The Green Knight” hit closer to home, releasing on 27th August


A breathtaking revision of a much loved Arthurian fable, director David Lowery’s The Green Knight is based on the epic 14th century poem about a young man in King Arthur’s court who embarks on an unforgettable journey of self-discovery.

Oscar nominee Dev Patel stars as Sir Gawain, the titular character who has to battle ghouls, ogres, thieves and crooks on his path to evolution.

The script’s core idea really got him excited, as he concludes, “This young man sets out across this harsh terrain, and it’s a trial by nature in so many ways. He comes across life and all its ferocity—scavengers, a damsel in distress, a beautiful woman who tempts him—and you realize how naive he is as a young man, despite or perhaps because of his privileged origins.”

The film also features Alicia Vikander and Joel Edgerton among others.

PVR Pictures to release The Green Knight in Indian Theatres on the 27th August, 2021.
