The Last Duel Film’s Plot
The story of Ridley Scott’s historical period drama film The Last Duel is set in the backdrop of France in the 14th century. The story of the film will focus on three main characters. These characters are Matt Damon’s Jean de Carrouges, Adam Driver’s Jacques Le Gris and Jodie Comer’s Marguerite de Carrouges. Though, Ben Affleck is playing supporting role as King Charles VI.
According to the story of the film, Jacques sexually assaults the Maruerite wife of Jean de Carrouges. When this matter reaches King Charles, he announces that the dispute will be resolved through a duel of death. Under which the one who survives in the last will be declared as the winner, considering it a sign of God’s will. And if Jean de Carrouges loses, his wife Marguerite’s claims are false and will be burned alive as punishment.
So, Ridley Scott’s The Last Duel will expose a woman’s sexual assault and her courage as well. It doesn’t matter, no matter how much time has changed, vandalism happens with women. Whether it is the ancient period or the modern era. We keep hearing something like this every day, such as the actress sexually abusing her in the name of work or for job. There is no doubt that the woman has always been considered as a footwear.
No matter how modern we have become today, but our mentality has been to bring down the woman. There was a #metoo moment for some time now. Where the actress was exploited in the name of work. These stories were not from any particular industry but also from Bollywood and Hollywood too. Obviously Ridley Scott’s The Last Duel will shed light on this issue as well.
20th Century Studios and Ridley Scott’s The Last Duel is set to release in theaters on October 15, 2021.
