  WSR Narrative Review
Story Synopsis:
After the fall of Rome the Irish and the British were never more divided. As the Irish King Donnchadh (O'Hara) was exercising power over England, Lord Marke (Sewell) of Britain hoped to unite forces and take over himself one day. When the king offered his daughter to the winner of an upcoming tournament, young warrior "Tristan" (Franco) won the battle "+ Isolde" (Myles) was excited, thinking that she would finally be with her true love. But Tristan had fought on behalf of Lord Marke and Isolde was to become his wife, leaving Tristan torn between loyalty to his mentor and love for the man's new wife. (Tricia Spears)

DVD Picture:
