King Lear

A megawatt cast of British actors - Anthony Hopkins, Emma Thompson, Emily Watson, Tobias Menzies, Florence Pugh and Jim Broadbent - invigorate a Shakespearean classic in British director Richard Eyre’s streamlined, sharply-drawn production. It’s stacked with ambition, scheming, betrayal, politics and madness and makes for a riotously-good watch.
