"Season of the Witch: a 14th-century road movie with 21st-century cuss words"

Season of the Witch, the new Nicolas Cage costume drama set in medieval Europe, tells the story of two crusaders and the witch girl they are hired to transport to her doom. Jeannette Catsoulis of the New York Times has a review.

The film stars Cage and Ron Perlman as deserters from the Crusades who are hired to take a young girl accross the treacherous wilderness to stand trial for witchcraft. Claire Foy co-stars as the witch, and Christopher Lee plays the dastardly Cardinal D’Ambroise.

The movie was filmed in the Austrian Alps.
