At the Premiere of 'The Last Duel, Ben Affleck & Jennifer Lopez toss Venice.

Ben Affleck & Jennifer Lopez in Venice

Ben Affleck and Matt Damon reunite in “The Last Duel,” a drama directed by Ridley Scott about the rape of a noblewoman in mediaeval France, which premieres at the Venice Film Festival on Friday.
The film is based on the historical tale of the final legal duel in 14th century France, when two knights faced off to test the veracity of a woman's claim of being raped.
Damon portrays the woman's husband, Jean de Carrouges, who fights his old friend-turned-rival Jacques Le Gris, played by Adam Driver, to avenge her and restore his family's honour.
The film had paparazzi on the Lido waterfront scrambling for a shot of red carpet beauty as Affleck arrived in Venice flanked by singer Jennifer Lopez, in their first official outing since their 20-year romance was just revived.
After a screening, Affleck, who portrays an all-powerful, macho count in the movie, told a press conference, "Yes, I do consider myself a feminist."
He stated that “in the disproportionate power that men have in society today,” there were vestiges of how women were treated not as human beings but as property in the Middle Ages.
The film is divided into three chapters, each written from the perspective of one of the three characters, with some scenes carefully modified and replayed to reflect the different points of view.
The film was co-written by Affleck and Damon, marking the first time the two actors have worked on a script since "Good Will Hunting," with Nicole Holofcener writing the woman's perspective.
