Ben Affleck and Jennifer Lopez have arrived for the 2021 Venice Film Festival together on Thursday (September 9)!
They are in town for Ben, who is promoting Ridley Scott‘s The Last Duel.
Ben co-wrote the script with his BFF Matt Damon. They also both star in the film alongside Adam Driver and Jodie Comer.
The Last Duel will have its Venice premiere on Friday (September 10).
The film is set in the midst of the Hundred Years War that explores the ubiquitous power of men, the frailty of justice and the strength and courage of one woman willing to stand alone in the service of truth. Based on actual events, the film unravels long-held assumptions about France’s last sanctioned duel between Jean de Carrouges (Damon) and Jacques Le Gris (Driver), two friends turned bitter rivals. Carrouges is a respected knight known for his bravery and skill on the battlefield. Le Gris is a Norman squire whose intelligence and eloquence make him one of the most admired nobles in court. When Carrouges’ wife, Marguerite (Comer), is viciously assaulted by Le Gris, a charge he denies, she refuses to stay silent, stepping forward to accuse her attacker, an act of bravery and defiance that puts her life in jeopardy. The ensuing trial by combat, a grueling duel to the death, places the fate of all three in God’s hands.
It has been a couple of weeks since we’ve seen Ben and Jen!
