When a thief named Gaston (Matthew Broderick) escapes from the dungeons, he seems doomed until he is befriended by Captain Navarre (Rutger Hauer), a knight with a hawk companion. He soon learns that the Captain is cursed to turn into a wolf at night, and the hawk is actually the Lady Isabeau (Michelle Pfeiffer), whose curse turns her into a hawk every day. The unlikely comrades team up to take on the evil Bishop (John Wood) and break the spell that curses them. It features great sword fighting, a perilous quest, and compelling characters.
