A drama that provokes, makes you think and that is told from three angles, the film “The Last Duel” explores the ubiquitous, strong power of men, the weakness of justice, and the strength and courage of a woman who is determined to work for the truth. Eric Jager’s enchanting book from 2004, “The Last Duel”, is a true story based on historical data about the legendary duel to the death and the last legal duel. The screenplay was written by Matt Damon and Ben Affleck, the duo who were last awarded the Oscar for best screenplay for the film “Good Will Hunting”.
In addition to Matt Damon and Ben Affleck, one of the main roles in the film is played by Adam Driver, an actor who has had lower success in the Hollywood starry sky in recent years. The audience remembers him as the father from the movie “Marriage Story” as Charlie Barber, “Star Wars” as Kylo Ren, and there is an upcoming movie with Lady Gaga “House of Gucci” as Maurizio Gucci, while this year at the Cannes Festival, together with Marion Cotillard, he received a standing ovation for the musical “Annette”.
