Synopsis

Loosely inspired by the England documented in 'The Canterbury Tales', 'A Knight's Tale' tells the story of William (Heath Ledger) a young squire with a talent for jousting. When his master dies somewhat prematurely William sets off with his friends, and an unknown writer called Chaucer (Paul Bettany). Chaucer agrees to forge documents that will 'prove' William's status as a knight and hence his eligibility to enter jousting competitions. Romance and fighting soon ensue in this historico-comedy with a contemporary rock soundtrack.
