The miniseries follows two women, medieval Alaïs Pelletier du Mas (Jessica Brown Findlay), who lives through the Crusades and Cathar massacres in medieval France, and modern-day Alice Tanner (Vanessa Kirby), in their quest to find the Holy Grail. Alice, a volunteer at a French archaeological excavation, discovers the skeletal remains of two people in a cave, as well as a labyrinth-engraved ring, which attracts the attention of unscrupulous individuals. In 1209, newly married Alaïs is living in Carcassonne, a stronghold of Cathars who have been declared heretical by the Church. Alaïs and her father are protecting three sacred books that reveal the secret of the Holy Grail from the Crusaders.Written by
I just finished watching this and immediately came here to write about how brilliant Labyrinth is! It left me wishing it never ended. The story demands your full attention immersing you into the heart of it all. The acting leaves no room for any criticism, which is not the least bit surprising considering the great cast. Tom Felton, Jessica Brown-Findley and Emun Elliot's performances deserve recognition. The transitioning of medieval and modern times is very smoothly done. Kate Mosse's Cameo at the end only accentuates the mix of emotions built up to that point. Even though you already know the fate of the characters, you are still affected deeply and left breathless at the end of it all. Definitely a must-watch. I know I will be re-watching this many times over.
