Long live King Arthur and Camelot! Yet in all of ancient England's newfound peace there is, a fraying link in Arthur's chain, the growing passion between heroic knight Sir Lancelot and beautiful Queen Guinevere. One of history's most beloved legends is vibrantly retold in an adaptation downplaying fantasy elements and giving 6th-century England a new kind of fantasy.
