Princess of Thieves (2001)
Kelley Reynolds - Co-Executive Producer
Director: Peter Hewitt (The Borrowers, Thunderpants)
The story is set in 12th-century England, where the spirited 18-year-old Gwyn (Keira Knightley) has inherited the beauty of her late mother, Marion, and the cunning bravery of her father, Robin Hood (Stuart Wilson). After growing up in a monastery under the watchful eye of Friar Tuck (Roger Ashton-Griffith) and her best friend, Froderick (Del Synnott), Gwyn is ready to follow in her father's footsteps, though Robin Hood would much rather see her become a proper lady.
As a wounded King Richard nears death, Robin Hood and his Merry Men are summoned to ensure that his heir, the handsome and free-spirited Prince Philip (Stephen Moyer), gains his rightful seat on the throne. But King Richard's brother, the evil and sinister Prince John (Jonathan Hyde), will stop at nothing to become king himself. He has enlisted the aid of Robin Hood's nemesis, the shrewd and villainous Sheriff of Nottingham (Malcolm McDowell), to assassinate Prince Philip. Robin Hood and his men are caught in a trap and are sentenced to death unless they betray Prince Philip to Prince John. The only one who can save Robin Hood and bring Philip to the throne is Gwyn, whose dazzling archery skills, quick wit, and indomitable passion will secure her place among the legends as "The Princess of Thieves."
