In the fantasy film The Green Knight, a young knight from King Arthur's round table goes on a quest to prove himself worthy of knighthood. The film is based on a medieval poem. Gawain sits alone in a great hall upon a throne in kingly regalia. A crown floats down from above as a narrator tells of his tale. As the crown alights, his head erupts in flames. Gawain wakes on Christmas morning in a brothel by his lover, a common woman named Essel. He returns to Camelot and, following a scolding by his mother, Morgan le Fay, attends a feast at the Round Table with his uncle King Arthur, who invites Gawain to his side. In a tower, le Fay performs a magic ritual which summons the mysterious Green Knight,[6] who barges into Arthur's court on horseback and challenges the court: Any knight able to land a blow on him will win his green axe. However, that knight must travel to the Green Chapel the following Christmas and receive an equal blow in return. Gawain takes up the challenge. Instead of fighting, the Knight kneels and lowers his head, and Gawain — wielding Excalibur — decapitates him. The Knight rises and lifts his severed head, reminds Gawain of the bargain and rides off from the castle laughing.
