Virgin Territory

Jennifer Lynn Jordan has hit the Early Warning System big red button about another medieval film being released this winter (December), Virgin Territory, which appears to be a Decameron adaptation.

I've mused more than once to my students that I'm surprised there aren't more films based from Decameron tales, since, unlike Beowulf, if you were to claim that the sex is in the original text, you'd actually be telling the truth! If the trailer is any indication, though, it won't be a very faithful adaptation. It looks like they're just going to sex up the frame text -- but I can always hope for brief interludes of some favorite tales.

In any case, I've saved it for my Netflix cue.
