Coriolanus

Tuesday 1st May 20127:00 PM

An adaptation of Shakespeare's tragedy Coriolanus, the film is both directed by and stars Ralph Fiennes.

Caius Martius 'Coriolanus' (Ralph Fiennes), a revered and feared Roman General is at odds with the city of Rome and his fellow citizens. Pushed by his controlling and ambitious mother Volumnia (Vanessa Redgrave) to seek the exalted and powerful position of Consul, he is loath to ingratiate himself with the masses whose votes he needs in order to secure the office. When the public refuses to support him, Coriolanus's anger prompts a riot that culminates in his expulsion from Rome. He offers his life or his services to his sworn enemy Tullus Aufidius.
