First Look at Netflix’s Cursed

By Chen Shun  /  11 May 2020 (Monday)

Based on the New York Times bestselling book, Cursed is a re-imagination of the Arthurian legend, told through the eyes of Nimue, a young woman with a mysterious gift whose destiny is to become the powerful (and tragic) Lady of the Lake. What if the legend of Arthur and Merlin was told in a new perspective? And the attention is on Nimue, the chosen Queen?

After her mother's death, she finds an unexpected partner in Arthur, a humble mercenary, in a quest to find Merlin and deliver an ancient sword. Throughout her journey, Nimue will become a symbol of courage and rebellion against the terrifying Red Paladins, and their complicit King Uther. Cursed is a coming-of-age story whose themes are familiar to our own time: the obliteration of the natural world, religious terror, senseless war, and finding the courage to lead in the face of the impossible.
