Guinevere's Loves

I recently caught the end of the movie "Last Knight", with Sean Connery as King Arther and Richard Gere as Lancelot. I was just in time to see Lancelot and Guinevere interupted by the king from a kiss impashioned by delay and restraint.

The film is full of wonderful quotes, but the scene between the king and his queen in which she pledges her love for him and her will to love him, along with his response, was particularly poignant and rich.

It is a wonderful movie, filled with sword fights, chivalry, romance, and lessons about real love.
