Viggo Mortensen stars as Captain Alatriste, the Spanish Musketeer, in this tale of war, betrayal and intrigue in seventeenth-century Imperial Spain under the reign of the weak and easily manipulated King Felipe IV.

This film will be introduced by curator of arms and armour, Tobias Capwell, who will draw connections between what can be seen on screen and what can be seen in the armouries of the Wallace Collection.
