SKU: 03808-M204

David Michôd takes a different path to Shakespearean adaptation in this reimagining of the Bard's Henriad, both reshaping the plays' dialogue and undercutting their patriotic sensibilities. As Anthony Carew finds, the film's re-creation of historical events not only trains a critical lens on the past, but also carries more than a few echoes of the current political moment.
