The Movie Club: Coriolanus


Once more unto the breach, dear friends...
Yes, Shakespeare wrote Coriolanus. Who knew? Well, Ralph Fiennes for one. The Academy Award nominated actor famous for The English Patient, Schindler’s List, and playing Harry Potter’s nemesis Voldemort, has chosen the Bard’s much overlooked play for his directorial debut.
But set in contemporary Belgrade, it's Shakespeare unlike you’ve ever seen it before. Join me, The Sci Fi Show’s Oscar Hillerstrom and Trespass Magazine’s Beth Wilson on our cinematic voyage of discovery, as we delve into the legendary life of Roman General Caius Marcias, transformed into a towering filmmaking debut by Fiennes.
