Set in 14th century France, The Last Duel follows Jodie Comer’s character Marguerite de Carrouges after she is sexually assaulted by her husband’s best friend.

Her husband Jean (Matt Damon) challenges his friend Jacques (Adam Driver) to a state-sponsored trial by combat after she confides in him. 

They believe the battle, the last lawful duel in French history, will determine by God’s hand whether or not Marguerite is telling the truth. Ben plays King Charles VI in the film. 

In a still from the film, Jodie is seen on horseback wearing black robes with a high collar and a dark brown hood. The star also sported a dark grey patterned bodice while her locks appear to be dyed blonde for the role.

Matt sports metal armour and a bloodied face in his still as his character takes part in a battle scene.

The film is told from the perspectives of each of the three characters, with Jodie telling Variety the movie will challenge audiences preconceived ideas of the role women had in society during that period.

She said: ‘I think, for me, what was the most interesting [thing] about this script, first and foremost, was the opportunity to give this woman a voice.’
