PG-13 | | Action, Adventure, Romance
After his master dies, a peasant squire, fueled by his desire for food and glory, creates a new identity for himself as a knight.
The actor playing the younger version of William has different colored eyes. Brian Helgeland didn't feel it would be fair to make the young actor wear contact lenses.
Should we help him?
Although the movie is set in roughly the 14th century, one of the French characters is called "Quasimodo" as an insult when Will's friends are betting on him in the bar. Victor Hugo, whose story the name Quasimodo comes from, was not born until 1802. However, the film is intentionally anachronistic in many areas.
As the first credits appear, the camera swings to show a constellation behind William and Jocelyn. The constellation is Orion, the Hunter. Jocelyn refers to William as the Hunter before she learns his name.
