The movie King Arthur retells the legend of the great warrior king who ruled England in the dark ages. Arthur (Clive Owen) is a Christian of Roman origin, but his knights are all pagans who were forced into service at a young age. Arthur has won over their allegiance by his selfless leadership, but they have retained the religion of their youth.

In this scene, Arthur is preparing his supplies in a dimly lit stable. He’s about to lead his knights on their last perilous quest before they will each be granted their freedom. Arthur, who is yet be king, is frustrated that his superiors would send his knights on such a dangerous mission just before they are to be released from duty—so he takes his discouragement to God. He sets down the saddle he’s carrying and bows in prayer. Lancelot, emerging from the darkness, overhears him.

Lancelot asks, “Why do you always talk to God and not to me? Pray to whomever you pray that we don’t cross the Saxons.”

“My faith is what protects me, Lancelot. Why do you challenge this?”

“I don’t like anything that puts a man on his knees,” Lancelot replies.

“No man fears to kneel before the God he trusts,” says Arthur. “Without faith, without belief in something, what are we?”
