Robin Hood

Taron Egerton from Kingsman's circuit stars in this retelling of the classic Robin Hood folk tale in the titular role of Robin of Loxley who joins forces with his trusted Moorish friend (Jamie Foxx) in mounting a series of dating heists to foil the criminal Sheriff of Nottingham during the absence of King Richard and while the royal court of England festers in corruption.  Also starring Ben Mendelsohn (Star Wars) as the archnemesis Sheriff and Eve Hewson as Maid Marion, wife of Will Scarlet, with Jamie Dornan (Fifty Shades of Grey) as Will Scarlet, half brother of Robin.



The first time I opened a Robin Hood adventure story is now a dim memory, crowded out by tons of remarkable firsts such as getting my driver’s license, playing my first PSP video game (Spider-Man), viewing my first Star Wars at a movie theater (Revenge of the Sith) or going to my first concert (Miley Cyrus).  All I remember is that it was part of a series on comparative literature and folk stories on Social Justice.  Classmates and myself in English Literature class had just zipped through the Adventures of Camelot and the Knights of the Round Table.
