The Green Knight

Vanity Fair

Cover picture for the articleDirector David Lowery tackles your most burning questions. Director David Lowery’s highly anticipated film, The Green Knight, is adapted from the anonymously written 14th-century poem “Sir Gawain and the Green Knight,” which most English majors have had to read at least once. It tells a rather simple story about King Arthur’s nephew Sir Gawain, who accepts a challenge from a supernaturally oversized knight on New Year’s Eve—and has one year to deliver on his side of the bargain. On his journey to find the Green Knight, Gawain encounters the usual Arthurian tests of honor and character, and comes out the other side a little more worse for wear than some of his fellow knights of the Round Table.
