It reflects how the Middle Ages value the high class in regards to the knights and forbids poor people from competing. The ability to change classes reflects modern values because it is easier done now compared to the Middle Ages.
Changing classes is definitely easier today. I think the love story is modern day as well.
The concept of never changing your status was displayed all through out with characters explaining how Will couldn’t be a knight. Will overcame this idea with determination and a little help from the prince. He beat the system so to speak and overdid everyone’s expectations.
I really like this post. I agree
The movie reflected the Middle Ages with the culture seen and the surroundings but matched our common day love story. There were puns for modern day things like Nike and jokes about present ordeals.
Makes sense. We value love more often than most stories from the Middle Ages.
Love wasn’t a big deal back then but modern day we value a love story more
This makes a lot of sense
The idea of chivalry reflects very middle aged themes. The idea of “changing your stars” reflects a very modern ideal that was not a part of the Middle Ages because of the social order they had.
It reflects how in the Middle Ages there was high class and low class. It’s was harder to change your class back then but it is a little easier in this day and age.
That is true
True changing your class has gotten easier over time
It’s shows that if you are in a class then you can’t change that and if you do then you may be better respected. Yes we have different classes but we are able to change them by working hard. Also women are treated differently like an object or a prize to be won. That still kind of applies today.
Women have more rights and most of the time not seen as an object anymore. People have more flexibility to become who they want to be, to where they come from.
The values are honor, glory, women, only the nobles really mattered. In modern time you can change who you are, you don’t have t be noble to matter, any one can be what ever they want.
I agree with your statement.
Women are viewed as property’s and noble woman are married to form alliances between families and not for love. It is modern because you can change your status and William and Jocelyn are married because they love each other.
Very true that they changed the viewpoints of the love story to fit our day and age better.
The movie had the culture of the Middle Ages. And when William changed his social class it had a modern reference.
I agree, our current culture is tied into the ending which allows our generation to relate with the movie more.
It still shows the classes of people we have and how the lower class is treated so much differently
That is very true
That’s a very good point.
Like the answer
The movie reflected the Middle Ages through the culture. Z the way the story was told. However it represented a modern love story instead of one that would have been back then. There were also examples of chivalry in the movie.
And women where prizes you won.
Chivalry definitely plays a key part to cultural inclusion with the movie.
It really was shown as more of a love story.
Some middle age values shown are bravery and boldness. A modern value shown is changing social standings.
Good one ☝️
Middle age social classes and modern jokes and symbols.
The movie reflects Middle Ages because poor people can’t compete in the tournaments, it’s only a high class thing. The movie reflects more modern society because William changed his stars which was not easily done back then but is done more commonly now.
I like how you mentioned that only higher class could compete in jousting.
It reflects how women were only really valued for their looks, as he ‘falls in love’ with her after only seeing her face. It reflects modern values because the lady is outspoken and independent.
It’s shows som kind of middle age identity in it. And the modern way it shows how you can change who you are by working.
It shows how the lower class in people is treated differently and harder to get out of.
Women being considered less than men. This is shown in the church when the priest shushed the noble woman and when the blacksmith was first introduced. Arranged marriages are also shown. The bad guy was talking to the noble woman’s father about arranging a marriage with her.
The woman showed that they were just as strong as the men by pointing out flaws and doing what they knew they should be able to.
It reflects strongly on the two social classes during the Middle Ages. Modern values are slightly different because you can change your status much easier than you could during that time.
It reflect the Middle Ages value by showing how man fight for women’s values and for there name. In the modern day it shows how some people fight for there believe.
