Heath Ledger will rock you in this medieval rom-com that remixes the historical with the contemporary. 

Better a silly girl with a flower than a silly boy with a horse and a stick.

Jocelyn (Shannyn Sossamon)

A widely loved film and a step up in the late Heath Ledger's ascension to Hollywood super stardom, A Knight’s Tale follows the exploits of a peasant, William Thather, who teams up with a rag-tag group of misfits to masquerade as a knight in an upcoming tournament. 

Featuring breakout performances from Paul Bettany, Alan Tudyk and Mark Addy, A Knight’s Tale is set to a raucous rock’n’roll soundtrack of Queen, David Bowie and AC/DC.

Join best-selling author and screenwriter Maria Lewis for this Twitter watch party to celebrate the film's 20th anniversary, with behind-the-scenes info, interviews and special guests.
