First Knight (1995): Jerry Zucker’s Adventure, Starring Sean Connery as King Arthur, Richard Gere as Lancelot, and Julia Ormond as Guinevere

Columbia
Director Jerry Zucker, mostly known for his comedies, followed up the Oscar-winning smash hit “Ghost” (1990), with this romantic fantasy-adventure, from a screenplay by William Nicholson (“Shadowlands”).
Unsuccessfully trying to place a fresh angle on the classic tale of King Arthur (Sean Connery) and the Round Table, the story is told from the perspective of the rogue knight Lancelot (Richard Gere), whose love for the beautiful Lady Guinevere (Julia Ormond) clouds his judgment and seals his fate.
Sean Connery is well cast, but Richard Gere and Julia Ormond, still hoping to become a bona fide movie star, give weak performances.
