Movie Review: "King Arthur"
Clive Owen and Keira Knightley play legendary figures King Arthur and Guinevere in Touchstone Pictures' "King Arthur," directed by Antoine Fuqua. Mixing romance, fighting, history, and drama, this screen version of King Arthur and his Knights of the Round Table is a surprisingly bloodless affair considering the movie's setting.

This emotional drama chronicles the struggles of a gay man who not only survived a concen- tration camp, but also emerged from it a better, more caring human being at peace with his sexuality.
