Ian McKellen, Annette Bening, Kristin Scott-Thomas, Jim Broadbent, Robert Downey JR, Nigel Hawthorne, Maggie Smith.
Loncraine's version is a light-year away from Olivier's. The director, who had previously avoided the Bard, wanted to team-up with the classically trained McKellen, and the result is a fresh vision of Shakespeare's grand design. Set in a 1930's civil war England, this is "a seamless, high-octane thriller of power and politics, one for today and tomorrow." (Time Out)
