Movie Review: ***^Justin and the Knights of Valour (2013)
Tony and I enjoyed this movie for movie night. Tony actually started it. What happens when you father, the king, has outlawed all Knights, and you feel your destiny is to become a knight. This is a show of family conflict, but also growth from a boy to a man. It also involves discovering who you really love, and it is not always the high society person, but sometimes the kitchen maid. This movie stars Freddie Highmore as Justin, Tamsin Egerton as Lara, his crush but the wrong girl, and Saoirse Ronan as Talia, the spunky girl he meets and Antonio Banderas as Sir Clorex, a fake knight. Mark Strong portrays Sir Heraclio, a banished knight who is coming back to seek revenge. A lesson learned in this film is that trying to make everyone equal so as to preserve peace it not always a good idea. There are those that are always willing to fill the void when you rule from weakness.
