The Last Duel, based on Eric Jager’s novel by the same name, brings the turbulent Middle Ages to life. At a time when chivalry dictated etiquette, social standing, and justice, it was possible to suffer severe consequences for disobeying the authorities – the Church, the nobility at court, a teenage king. In these turbulent times, the stakes were even higher for a woman without legal standing or support from her husband.
The film stars Jodie Comer (Killing Eve) as Marguerite de Carrouges, and Oscar nominee Adam Driver (Marriage Story) as Jacques Le Gris, along with Oscar-winning duo Matt Damon (Good Will Hunting) as Jean de Carrouges, and Ben Affleck (Argo) as Count Pierre d’Alençon. It also features Harriet Walter, Nathaniel Parker, Sam Hazeldine, and Michael McElhatton.
The Last Duel is directed and produced by visionary filmmaker and four-time Oscar nominee Ridley Scott (Gladiator, Alien) from a screenplay adapted by Affleck, Damon, and Oscar nominee Nicole Holofcener. Producers are Affleck, Damon, Holofcener, Kevin J. Walsh, Jennifer Fox, with Kevin Halloran, Drew Vinton, Madison Ainley serving as executive producers.
