Congratulations to Richard Armitage’s colleagues in the 2017 film Pilgrimage for earning 3 IFTA nominations! January 13, 2018 Gratiana Lovelace (Post #1135)

The talented British actor Richard Armitage  portrays Sir Raymond De Merville in the 2017 film “Pilgrimage”:

Thanks to Angelika for sharing the image below of Richard Armitage portraying one of the leads Sir Raymond De Merville:

Wow! The costume detail in the image above is exquisite and authentic looking!  That chain mail must weigh about 50 – 70 pounds.

So you can really see why the “Pilgrimage” Costumes Department received a nomination for the  2018 IFTA (Irish Film & Television Academy) Awards (below as shared by Mat Khal.  Thanks!):

And for anyone remotely interested, I had previously taken a stab at analyzing Sir Raymond De Merville’s coat of arms (image via the Hollywood Reporter):

And, “Pilgrimage” is nominated in 2 other 2018 IFTA Award categories (in addition to Costume): Cinematography and Original Score. Congrats one and all!

Set in the Middle Ages, “Pilgrimage” is about a group of Irish monks who are tasked with bringing their holy relic across Europe to Rome.  Naturally, they encounter trouble along the way.  And the film is purported to be a violent and gory film.

I have not seen the film yet.  And though movies with violence and gore in it are not my cup of tea, historical fiction is a genre that I enjoy.  So I plan to eventually watch it—or try to.  ;)   And a variety of viewing platforms are available to rent or own the film for everyone’s convenience:


About Gratiana Lovelace

Gratiana Lovelace is my nom de plume for my creative writing and blogging. I write romantic stories in different sub genres. The stories just tumble out of me. My resurgence in creative writing occurred when I viewed the BBC miniseries of Elizabeth Gaskell's novel North & South in February 2010. The exquisitely talented British actor portraying the male lead John Thornton in North & South--Richard Crispin Armitage--became my unofficial muse. I have written over 50 script stories about love--some are fan fiction, but most are original stories--that I am just beginning to share with others on private writer sites, and here on my blog. And as you know, my blog here is also relatively new--since August 2011. But, I'm having fun and I hope you enjoy reading my blog essays and my stories. Cheers! Grati ;-> upd 12/18/11
