After dominating the Oscars with Gladiator, Director Ridley Scott returns to historical epics with this tale set during the Crusades of the 12th Century. Kingdom of Heaven follows Balian (Orlando Bloom), a blacksmith whose faith is waning after the loss of his family. Fate comes calling when a knight, Sir Godfrey of Ibelin (Liam Neeson), returns from the Crusades, tells Balian that he is his long-lost father, and summons his son to join him. The two travel to Jerusalem, where peace hangs by a thread. Sir Godfrey is among a group of knights who believe the city should exist in peace. Sir Godfrey will teach his son to honor this vision, uphold peace, and fight for tolerance so that Jerusalem will be a Kingdom of Heaven on Earth.
