This mini-series follows two women, medieval Alaïs Pelletier du Mas (Jessica Brown Findlay), who lives through the Crusades and Cathar massacres in medieval France, and modern-day Alice Tanner (Vanessa Kirby), in their quest to find the Holy Grail. Alice, a volunteer at a French archaeological excavation, discovers the skeletal remains of two people in a cave, as well as a labyrinth-engraved ring, which attracts the attention of unscrupulous individuals. In 1209, newly married Alaïs is living in Carcassonne, a stronghold of Cathars who have been declared heretical by the Church. Alaïs and her father are protecting three sacred books that reveal the secret of the Holy Grail from the Crusaders.Written by
Still a little amazed!!Loved it!!! I usually skip out on serious shows,at least the kind which is this serious and slightly gory and historical but this!!Gosh,this was perfect.I haven't watched any of the versions but this was mind-blowing mainly because of the characters.I'll admit,Tom Felton was what drew me to this initially but every character here is just...no words to describe because nothing seemed exaggerated, even the lunatics were believable! The bad guys make you hate them and the good guys make you love them,now is that good acting or not??! The main character was likable,not an ounce of Mary-Sue-ish qualities or hateful moments from my side. :D! And Alais and Guilhem's story left me in tears.And this coming from someone who so does not cry watching something. A definite 'Must watch'!
