The Last Duel follows the true story of Jean de Carrouges, a 14th century French knight who embarks on a fight to the death with former friend Jacques Le Gris (Adam Driver).

Adapted from Eric Jager’s book of the same name, Jodie’s character Marguerite is the woman at the centre of the fight, after she and her husband de Carrouges accuse Le Gris of raping her. 

The film is told from the perspectives of each of the three characters, with Jodie telling Variety the movie will challenge audiences pre-conceived ideas of the role women had in society during that period.

She said: ‘I think, for me, what was the most interesting [thing] about this script, first and foremost, was the opportunity to give this woman a voice.’ 

The Last Duel marks the first return of Matt’s writing partnership with Ben since their award-winning script for Good Will Hunting, and the pair co-wrote the screenplay alongside Nicole Holofcener. 

Originally, Matt and Ben were set to play the two leading roles in the film, but they ran into scheduling conflicts because of Ben’s film Deep Water, so Adam took over the role of Le Gris. 

Ben will instead star as Count Pierre d’Alençon. 

Filming began on the movie in February last year in France but the set was shut down in March due to the pandemic and travel restrictions in Europe, before they returned to filming in September.

The topic of the panel will be ‘the dramatic situation of Afghan filmmakers and artists in general, the need for the creation of humanitarian corridors and the guarantee of the granting of political refugee status, as well as concern for their future and the need to provide for their accommodation once they arrive in Europe.’
