I watched this again over the weekend, and thought it would be a great choice for today. “A Knights Tale” starring Heath Ledger as the knight and my favorite character, portrayed by Paul Bettany. Personally, I think this actor outshone them all. It has humor, music, touching scenes, and jousting! Need I say more?
Peasant-born William Thatcher (Heath Ledger) begins a quest to change his stars, win the heart of an exceedingly fair maiden (Shanynn Sossamon) and rock his medieval world. With the help of friends (Mark Addy, Paul Bettany, Alan Tudyk), he faces the ultimate test of medieval gallantry — tournament jousting — and tries to discover if he has the mettle to become a legend.
