Cursed was released on Netflix on July 17th and I couldn’t be happier about this Frank Miller and Thomas Wheeler collaboration. The show is a re-imagining of the the legend of King Arthur as told through the eyes of a young woman, Nimue. Nimue is a young heroine with a mysterious gift who is destined to become the powerful (and tragic) Lady of the Lake. After her mother’s death, she finds an unexpected partner in Arthur, a young mercenary, in a quest to find Merlin and deliver an ancient sword. Over the course of her journey, Nimue will become a symbol of courage and rebellion against the terrifying Red Paladins, and their complicit King Uther. In another piece on that site. It’s a poignant relatable piece that tells our story in an age where everything is uncertain and the only thing we have to rely on is our courage and hope that things will get better.
Check out the trailer and see it now on Netflix.
