Historical drama directed by Ridley Scott, with the screenplay written by Nicole Holofcener, Ben Affleck, and Matt Damon. Based on actual events, set in 14th century France, The Last Duel (2021) centers on the last sanctioned duel between Jean de Carrouges (Matt Damon) and Jacques Le Gris (Adam Driver), two friends turned bitter rivals. When Carrouges wife, Marguerite (Jodie Comer), is viciously assaulted by Le Gris, a charge he denies, she refuses to stay silent, stepping forward to accuse her attacker, an act of bravery and defiance that puts her life in jeopardy. The ensuing trial by combat, a grueling duel to the death, places the fate of all three in God’s hands.
