A Knight’s Tale

If anyone can sell “The Canterbury Tales” to Hollywood, it’s Brian Helgeland, who directed “Payback,” wrote “L.A. Confidential” and wears both hats here. The movie stars just-gets-hotter Heath Ledger as a lowly sort in 14th-century France who tries to joust his way into history — winning the heart of fair maiden Shanyn Sossamon and the friendship of Geoff Chaucer (Paul Bettany) along the way. Supporting players Mark Addy, Alan Tudyk and Laura Fraser take their places alongside Ledger as he embarks on an adventure set to out-of-place stadium sing-along “We Will Rock You.” Long live the Queen.
