The Green Knight and Sir Gawain

The Green Knight has just been released in the cinemas. This week, Danièle is joined by Peter Konieczny to talk about the film and how it compares to the 14th-century story Sir Gawain and the Green Knight.

There are spoilers for the film in the second half of the podcast! The first half talks about the original story and our impressions of the film, while the second half goes into more detail, so come back to listen to that part after you have seen The Green Knight.


Danièle’s review of The Green Knight can be found here.
