Titus

Anthony Hopkins, Jessica Lange, Jonathan Rhys Meyers, Alan Cumming.
Against an authentic backdrop of ancient Rome, in this seldom-performed story of bloody double revenge, Hopkins is magnificent as Titus Andronicus, the Roman general returning home from his defeat of the northern Goths, whose Queen (Lange) remains a formidable adversary. Horror, pathos and the blackest of humour are blended in a most intelligent and audacious interpretation.

Boldly imagined and brimming with passion, a striking addition to Shakespeare's filmography
