Still image from the film Excalibur
Shot entirely on location in Ireland, John Boorman brilliantly recreates the timeless myth of Arthur’s rise and fall in Excalibur. After extracting the famed sword from its stone, Arthur becomes ruler of Camelot, leading the Knights of the Roundtable under the guidance of Merlin and lady Guenevere. Lust and betrayal lead to the kingdom’s inevitable decay. The film helped launch the acting careers of several Irish and English actors, including Liam Neeson, Helen Mirren, Patrick Stewart, Gabriel Byrne, and Neil Jordan. (35mm Presentation)
