Dev Patel gives a highly nuanced performance as the central character in David Lowery’s adaptation of the Arthurian classic. A breathtakingly beautiful portrayal of a knight’s inner conflict on his quest for valour, and a masterclass in world building, this film is best enjoyed on a big screen. Daniel Hart’s score creates cinematic poetry, pitched perfectly between Breaking Dawn Part 2 and the Last Temptation of Christ. Trust us, it works.
