What happens when you mix medieval history with David Bowie? A Knight’s Tale. When it was released in 2001, the film was a modest hit despite mixed reviews, appealing to good natured fans of English history (despite its creative liberties and lax approach to accuracy) and classic rock. With a golden-haired Heath Ledger heading the ensemble, A Knight’s Tale is more than anything a profoundly fun film. It’s silly as hell and at times a little dumb, but a game cast and some cool jousting sequences ensure a good time for viewers.
It has also earned a soft spot in the memories of many movie fans. Most people who saw the film when it was released 15 years ago (yep, you’re old) remember it fondly as a fixation of youth that has aged well. It also served as a jumping off point for many successful careers, so take a look at what the cast has been up to for the last decade and a half.
