The 78th Venice International Film Festival has released its schedule, and Ridley Scott’s The Last Duel will be playing!

20th Century Studios’ The Last Duel stars Matt Damon, Adam Driver, Ben Affleck and Jodie Comer, and was directed by Ridley Scott.

Here’s more about the story:

Set in the midst of the Hundred Years War that explores the ubiquitous power of men, the frailty of justice and the strength and courage of one woman willing to stand alone in the service of truth. Based on actual events, the film unravels long-held assumptions about France’s last sanctioned duel between Jean de Carrouges and Jacques Le Gris, two friends turned bitter rivals. Carrouges is a respected knight known for his bravery and skill on the battlefield. Le Gris is a Norman squire whose intelligence and eloquence make him one of the most admired nobles in court. When Carrouges’ wife, Marguerite, is viciously assaulted by Le Gris, a charge he denies, she refuses to stay silent, stepping forward to accuse her attacker, an act of bravery and defiance that puts her life in jeopardy. The ensuing trial by combat, a grueling duel to the death, places the fate of all three in God’s hands.

The Venice Film Festival takes place from September 1-11 this year. The Last Duel is set to release in the US on October 15, 2021.
