Venice Film Festival 2021: Matt Damon cuts a sharp figure in a dark navy suit while wife Luciana Barroso stuns in a strapless sequin gown at The Last Duel premiere
Matt Damon and his wife Luciana Barroso cut very stylish figures as they attended the premiere of his film The Last Duel amid the 78th Venice Film Festival on Friday.
The actor, 50, looked sharp in a dark navy suit while he posed alongside his stunning partner, 45, who wowed in a black, strapless sequin gown.
Matt teamed his two-piece suit with a black shirt and matching bow tie, finishing off his dapper look with shiny patent black shoes.
And while her husband was the star of the film, Luciana certainly proved to be the star of the red carpet as she dazzled in her amazing gown which featured a semi-sheer skirt adorned with sequins.
The Argentinian beauty wore her caramel locks in a sleek style, while she added a touch of blind withy diamond drop earrings.
The couple appeared in great spirits as they held each other close while posing for snaps.
Matt and Luciana were in good company as they were also joined on the red carpet by Matt's co-stars Jodie Comer and Ben Affleck, who was accompanied by on-again girlfriend Jennifer Lopez.
Pals Matt and Ben were also seen having a chat as they caught up at the star-studded event.
The Last Duel which follows the the true story of Jean de Carrouges (Matt), a 14th century French knight who embarks on a fight to the death with former friend Jacques Le Gris (Adam Driver).
Adapted from Eric Jager's book of the same name, Jodie's character Marguerite is the woman at the centre of the fight, after she and her husband de Carrouges accuse Le Gris of raping her.
The film is told from the perspectives of each of the three characters, with Jodie telling Variety the movie will challenge audiences pre-conceived ideas of the role women had in society during that period.
She said: 'I think, for me, what was the most interesting [thing] about this script, first and foremost, was the opportunity to give this woman a voice.'
The Last Duel marks the first return of Matt's writing partnership with Ben since their award-winning script for Good Will Hunting, and the pair co-wrote the screenplay alongside Nicole Holofcener.
Originally, Matt and Ben were set to play the two leading roles in the film, but they ran into scheduling conflicts because of Ben's film Deep Water, so Adam took over the role of Le Gris.
Ben will instead star as Count Pierre d'Alençon.
Filming began on the movie in February last year in France but the set was shut down in March due to the pandemic and travel restrictions in Europe, before they returned to filming in September.
Matt was at the film's next location in Ireland when lockdown began and, amid the travel ban, ended up isolating in the seaside resort of Dalkey, an affluent suburb of Dublin with his wife and four children for a few weeks.
The Last Duel had a scheduled released date of December 2020 but it has now been pushed back to October 15, 2021.
