Coriolanus (2011) 15
Director: Ralph Fiennes
Starring: Ralph Fiennes, Gerard Butler and Brian Cox
A banished hero of Rome allies with a sworn enemy to take his revenge on the city.
The citizens of Rome are hungry. Coriolanus, the hero of Rome, a great soldier and a man of inflexible self-belief despises the people. His extreme views ignite a mass riot. Rome is bloody. Manipulated and out-maneuvered by politicians and even his own mother Volumnia, Coriolanus is banished from Rome. He offers his life or his services to his sworn enemy Tullus Aufidius.
Giardian Review by Peter Bradshaw guardian.co.uk, Thursday 19 January 2012
There’s a fierce critical intelligence at work in Ralph Fiennes’s new adaptation of Shakespeare’s Coriolanus, set somewhere like the war-torn Serbia of the 1990s, a world of rolling TV news, image management and cynical deals cut in smoke-filled rooms.
