Name this movie?

I watched this movie like , 4 or 5 years ago In my History class where this man was someone important and had a wife or girlfriend he was supposed to marry but his best friend was bitter and sent him off to be imprisoned and the bestfriend ended up telling the mans wife/girlfriend he was dead so she would be with the bestfriend. Meanwhile the man met an old man whoever he was locked away with and they bonded and he finally dug a way out but the old man didn't make it out or something I think maybe he had him reading a bible I'm not sure on that. Finally , after years of being away he gets back and the "best friend" isn't happy and they end up fighting with swords. I'm sure the movie is maybe early 2000's or late 1990's? I've been trying to find it for years. Its a really good movie. Please help!!!!

Omg thank you so much! How did you know?
I had actually researched it for another question's possible answer a month, or so, ago, and I remembered how cool the plot was.
