Princess of Thieves (2001)
Keira Knightley stars in this made-for-TV Disney adventure that puts a spin on an often-told story. The film picks up years after the “known” events of the Robin Hoodlegend, centering on Robin’s daughter, Gwyn, played by Knightley. As Maid Marian has died and Robin Hood (Stuart Wilson) is perpetually away battling in the Crusades, Gwyn has lived much of her life alone.
She has grown up to be a strong-willed young woman with a talent for archery, much like her father. Her only friend is the sweet but plain Froderick (Del Synnott), who clearly is in love with her. Upon the death of Richard the Lionheart, Robin returns to see that the proper man takes Richard’s place as king of England. However, Robin is quickly foiled and imprisoned by the villainous Sheriff of Nottingham (Malcolm McDowell) and Prince John (Jonathan Hyde).
Starring: Keira Knightley, Stephen Moyer, Stuart Wilson, Del Synnott, Malcolm McDowell, Jonathan Hyde, Crispin Letts.
