September 1, 2009 - Get Ready for Lorenzo - Hayden Christensen put down his light saber in May 2005 and picked up a medieval sword to play a charming scoundrel in the bawdy period comedy Virgin Territory. Lorenzo di Lamberti (Christensen) can have any maiden he chooses except the one who has really captured his heart. Pampinea Anastagi (Mischa Barton) has lost her family to the plague and is being persued by her betrothed Russian Count (Matthew Rhyes) and a villainous nobleman (Tim Roth) holding her estate's IOUs.
Virgin Territory is a medieval tongue-in-cheek romantic comedy loosely based on Giovanni Bocaccio's 14th century literary work "The Decameron". Beautifully filmed in Tuscany and and other historic locations in Italy, it is a cross between Monty Python and A Knight's Tale set to a contempory musical score by Ilan Eshkeri.
All the medieval "American Pie" type sexual escapades aside, the film revolves around the love story between Lorenzo (Hayden Christensen) and Pamipinea (Mischa Barton). As Lorenzo and Pampinea, unknown to each other, escape to the same convent, trickery ensues and sets Lorenzo on the quest to find his true love but not before he finds himself fighting off a nobleman's vendetta.
Starring Hayden Christensen, Mischa Barton and Tim Roth Virgin Territory begins airing on The Movie Channel, Fri, Sep 4, 8:00 PM ET. Rated R for adult themes, strong language, violence, sexual situations and nudity.
