Editor's Note
Lancelot (Richard Gere) is a rogue with no ties, no enemies, and no fear- until he meets Lady Guinevere of Leonesse (Julia Ormond). She has promised to marry King Arthur (Sean Connery), not only because his armies can protect her country, but because she truly loves him. But her chance encounter with Lancelot as she prepared to enter Camelot stirs conflicting and powerful emotions within her. Arthur welcomes both into his city with open heart, little foreseeing how his great capacity for love and trust opens the doors for his own betrayal.

Plot Summary
On the way to meet King Arthur, her future husband and ally, Lady Guenevere and her retinue are attacked by Arthur's mortal enemy, the malicious Malagant. Prince Malagant wants possession of Guinevere's land, which lies between Arthur's kingdom and his own. However, the daring Lancelot intercedes and foils the attack. In return, this roaming-sword-for-hire asks for a kiss from the lovely Lady -- a request that Guinevere coldly refuses.| They meet again when Lancelot turns up at one of Camelot's public tournaments, and proves to Arthur that he deserves to become the King's first knight. So when Malagant strikes again, kidnapping Queen Guinevere, Lancelot once more serves as her rescuer. But now, Guinevere's reaction is no longer chilly -- and the two proceed to fall in love, betraying Arthur's trust and friendship.

Boxoffice Magazine 8 of 10
First Knight is a stirring, passionate rendering of the tale of King Arthur, Lady Guinevere, Sir Lancelot, the Knights of the Round Table and the one brief shining moment of the legendary city called Camelot. Sean Connery is no less than excellent as Arthur, commanding, wise and benevolent, a leader to the end, with a sense of humor to boot. - Christine James

Washington Post 7 of 10
As Arthur, of course, Sean Connery is irresistible. Connery is the perfect Arthur/Richard the Lion-Hearted/Robin Hood because he manages to convey that these heroes recognize their idealism as a form of boyishness, and he invests them with a bit of self-deprecation and a trace of stubbornness. - Eve Zibart
