Is The Last Duel Based On A True Story?
In the movie, the wife of Jean, Marguerite (role played by Jodie Comer), blames Le Gris for rape. When the justice fails, it directs Jean to challenge Le Gris to a double to preserve the privilege of his wife and his name while also giving him a cause to battle the man against whom he has long conducted a grievance. The events which are predicted in the movie are viewed and featured in 3 separate parts, informed from the perspectives of the main cast of The Last Duel: Marguerite, Jean, and Jacques.
Onlookers have viewed the growing split between Jacques and Jean directing up the rape, the jealousy of jean for and protectiveness of his wife or maybe his property, and the general hardship Marguerite found in being a lady in the 14th century. Following the accusation and rise of trial, proceedings could not determine a guilty party, it was then decided that they would battle a double to determine each guilt and innocence of the party. If jean defeat, it would be taken as the judgment of God and considered confirmation that Marguerite had deceived and she would have been scorched at the stake.
