"...Connery and Hepburn bring a fervid depth of feeling to their characters' rekindled courtship..."
This romantic epic takes a bittersweet look at Robin Hood and Maid Marian in their later years. After King Richard's death in the Holy Land, Robin Hood (Sean Connery) and his trusty companion Little John finally return home to England. Despite his two-decade absence, Robin immediately determines to find his long-lost love, Maid Marian (Audrey Hepburn). He discovers her in a convent, where she retired after waiting fruitlessly for him to return from the Crusades. Now she is comfortably settled there as the Mother Superior, and does not fully welcome Robin's return. But she has not quite forgotten her feelings for him, either...Unfortunately, past rivalries die hard, too, and the middle-aged swashbuckler also finds himself drawn into a war against his old nemesis, the Sheriff of Nottingham.
A middle-aged Robin Hood returns to Sherwood Forest from the crusades, and is reunited with both his merry men and his former love, Maid Marian. When he crosses the path of his arch enemy, the Sheriff of Nottingham, a final showdown begins.
