Jodie Comer gives a stunning performance in this thought-provoking drama set against the brutality of 14th century France from visionary filmmaker Ridley Scott. Based on actual events, the film centers on the accusation by Marguerite de Carrouges (Comer) that she was brutally assaulted by Jacques Le Gris (Adam Driver), her husband Jean de Carrouges’s (Matt Damon) friend. In order to protect his pride and prove his wife’s claim, de Carrouges requests to fight Le Gris to the death. Now, all three lives hang in the balance in this society that holds that the victor of this grisly duel will be determined by God. Moreover, if de Carrouges dies in this fight, Marguerite will be put to death. Also starring Ben Affleck as Le Gris’ scheming ally, the Count d’Alençon, this gripping, cinematic story is based on Eric Jager’s book "The Last Duel: A True Story of Crime, Scandal, and Trial by Combat in Medieval France." THE LAST DUEL is a riveting, suspenseful tale about a courageous woman willing to risk her life in the service of truth.

Rotten Tomatoes® Score
Critics Consensus: The Last Duel's critique of systemic misogyny isn't as effective as it might have been, but it remains a well-acted and thought-provoking drama infused with epic grandeur.

Brutal violence in clunky tale of toxic masculinity.
What Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that The Last Duel is a blood-soaked medieval sword fight drama directed by Ridley Scott, starring Jodie Comer, Matt Damon, Adam Driver, and Ben Affleck. It's ambitious in its attempts to address toxic masculinity and female power, but its length and structure make it frequently clunky and repetitive. Expect extremely gory battle violence, with slicing, stabbing, and buckets of blood. A brutal rape scene is shown twice. A bloody male corpse is stripped, dragged away, and hung; horses die horribly; and more. There are also brief but explicit sex scenes, including a character shown with five partners who are naked in bed. Men are shown thrusting on top of women, and there's full-frontal nudity. Language includes variations on "f--k," a use of "c--t," and a use of "damned." Characters guzzle wine during a party scene, and a secondary character drinks frequently throughout.
