Editorial Reviews

Peter Travers
Purists be damned. You won't be able to wipe the grin off your face. —Rolling Stone
School Library Journal
Adult/High School-Heartthrob Heath Ledger staring grimly from the book's cover, along with the promise of a 24-page photo album within, will insure the popularity of this selection about the popular movie. Those who actually read more than the captions will find an amusing fairy tale of a fearless peasant pretending to be a noble in order to compete in tournaments. The introduction by the film's screenwriter and director provides an interesting story of its conception, and the changes made in the script as it was shot and edited. Film students will pay special attention to the differences between the film released in theaters and the shooting script itself. An entertaining addition to the library shelves.-Jane S.

    The Film Script: A Knight's Tale is Remarkably Splendid, Enjoyable and Romantically Wonderful!!!

    A Knight's Tale is a fourteenth century medieval story about a young noble peasant whose name is William Thatcher who pretends to be an adventurous, brave knight at heart. From the help of Roland and Wat, William enters and participates in the jousting tournament disguised as a knight. Then, William wins the joust. Roland, Wat and William train for different sport events in the jousting tournaments. Roland, Wat, William and Chaucer went to London; Prague and Paris to compete in the jousting world tournaments. While riding his horse through town, William saw Jocelyn and falls in love. He tells Roland that she makes him feel like a poet! I enjoyed reading A Knight's Tale Film Script! Especially, I liked the poetic script words that William and Jocelyn said to each other while they were romantically in love. For instance, when William said to Jocelyn that if he could ask God one thing; it would be to stop the moon. To stop the moon and make this night and your beauty last forever. To me, A Knight's Tale Film Script has an enthusiastic truly meaning in detail at its entirety. I loved the movie! The movie was great! I liked when William and Jocelyn danced the 'Golden Years Dance', hopped and spinned together to the instrumental; chanting; upbeat music in the banquet. Also, the music conducting theme score by Carter Burnell from A Knight's Tale is fantastic!
