Two popular movies starring the late Heath Ledger. 'A Knight's Tale' (2000) tells the story of William (Heath Ledger), a young squire with a talent for jousting. When his master dies somewhat prematurely, William sets off with his friends, and an unknown writer called Chaucer (Paul Bettany). Chaucer agrees to forge documents that will 'prove' William's status as a knight and hence his eligibility to enter jousting competitions. 'Ned Kelly' (2003) is a biopic of the notorious Australian outllaw and folk hero, played by Ledger. From a family of Irish immigrants in the Victoria area of Australia, Kelly has long been the target of a prejudiced police force. Sentenced to three years in prison for theft, he finds a job tending horses on a ranch when he is released. But when Kelly falls foul of crooked policeman Fitzpatrick (Kiri Paramore), he finds himself on the run after being accused of a crime he didn't commit. Together with his brothers, Kelly forms a bank-robbing gang and is pursued by bounty hunter Francis Hare (Geoffrey Rush), leading to a final stand where Kelly armours himself with steel plate, determined to go down in a blaze of glory.
