The epic story of Trojan War is being retold in new series at Netflix called Troy: Fall of a City. It looks more like Game of Thrones and I am saying it in a good way.
We have heard the Trojan War story many times over the years, the most famous account is Homer’s The Iliad. But, Do you remember Wolfgang Peterson’s Troy, which starred Brad Pitt. It was a brilliant movie and I love it quite a lot, I know most people don’t fancy the movie but for me, it had its moments.
This new series which follows the story of when the prince of Troy, Paris, flees with the queen of Sparta, Helen. Check out the synopsis:
An epic story of love and war, intrigue and betrayal. When Helen and Paris fall in love, they trigger a chain of events that threatens their families and the city of Troy. The myths surrounding the Trojan War are over 3,000 years old but have emotional depths and timeless themes of identity, love, revenge and belonging. Troy: Fall of a City grounds these primal myths in vivid psychological truth and explores the universal questions of human existence- how people battle to retain their love and humanity amidst the chaos and devastation of war.
