The Reckoning synopsis

England 14th century. Plague and attacks threaten remote communities and the forests that surround them add nameless terrors. The people labor under the yoke of two oppressive powers -- the Church laying claim to their souls and the Knights, the feudal warlords, who command life or death. Nicholas (Paul Bettany), a young priest, is discovered in the act of adultery by a husband who dies in the ensuing struggle. Appalled by his fall from grace, he turns his back on the Church and goes on the run.
