Vitezova usoda - A Knight's Tale

Slovenski opis filma:

Francija v 14. stoletju. Revni William Thatcher sanja, da bo nekega dne postal čisto pravi vitez, žal pa je v tem času vzpenjanje po družbeni lestvici povsem nemogoče. Če se rodiš reven, reven tudi umreš. Nekega dne na viteškem turnirju dobi William nepričakovano priložnost. Ko umre njegov gospodar, William obleče njegov oklep in na turnirju zmaga. Tako postane prvak v športu, ki je rezerviran samo za plemstvo. William tudi spozna možakarja, ki mu izdela ponarejene dokumente. Tako začne pod novim imenom Ulrich von Lichtenstein nastopati na viteških turnirjih.

Originalni opis filma:

Inspired by "The Canterbury Tales," as well as the early life of William Marshall (later First Earl of Pembroke), this is the story of William, a young squire with a gift for jousting. After his master dies suddenly, the squire hits the road with his cohorts Roland and Wat. On the journey, they stumble across an unknown writer, Chaucer. William, lacking a proper pedigree, convinces Chaucer to forge genealogy documents that will pass him off as a knight. With his newly-minted history in hand, the young man sets out to prove himself a worthy knight at the country's jousting competition, and finds romance along the way.
