(2001) Rollicking action adventure story about a young squire (Heath Ledger) in 14th-century France who assumes his deceased master’s identity and works his way up the jousting circuit to foil a nasty villain (Rufus Sewell). Inspired by Chaucer’s Canterbury Tales, director Brian Helgeland deftly blends contemporary attitudes, dialogue, and rock music into an entertaining period piece although the movie’s length is a bit indulgent. Intermittent action violence, some rear nudity, and fleeting crass language. (A-II — adults and adolescents) (PG-13 — parents strongly cautioned) Showtime (cable)
