A feared and revered military commander courts tragedy when he enters the political arena in Coriolanus, a driving action/drama that marks the directorial debut of the film's star, two-time Academy Award-nominee Ralph Fiennes.
Working from an adapted screenplay by award-winning writer John Logan, Fiennes takes a bracingly modern and naturalistic approach to Shakespeare, delivering a story that speaks strongly to our own polarized, volatile times.
Updating William Shakespeare's late-period tragedy of ancient Roman setting to the 21st-century of guerrilla insurgencies, instant polling, and 24-hour news networks, Fiennes delivers a trenchant tale of honor, power, politics, and pride. Joining Fiennes onscreen is an exciting, impressive, and international cast that includes Gerard Butler, Brian Cox, Oscar winner Vanessa Redgrave, Jessica Chastain, John Kani, James Nesbitt, Paul Jesson, Lubna Azabal, and Ashraf Barhom.
