The King

It’s not only epic battle scenes in this intimate and visually arresting drama, where themes of loyalty and corruption are scintillatingly examined. Directed, produced and written by David Michôd, the film boasts an array of impressive talent from Joel Edgerton (also credited as co-writer and producer) to the London-born Robert Pattinson.





Hal (Timothée Chalamet) is crowned King Henry V after his tyrannical father (Ben Mendelsohn) dies. After reluctantly assuming the throne, he is forced to navigate the unforgiving world of 15th century politics and warfare.
