(UK, 2014)
Director: Josie Rourke. Based on the play by William Shakespeare.
Cast: Tom Hiddleston, Mark Gatiss, Birgitte Sørensen, Deborah Findlay.
After a Fall season of encore broadcast performances celebrating the 50th Anniversary of Britain's National Theater, Cinestudio presents a new LIVE performance of Coriolanus, Shakespeare's searing tragedy of political and personal revenge. Directed by Josie Rourke, the Donmar Warehouse production features current screen heartthrob Tom Hiddleston (The Avengers, War Horse, Thor) in the title role, Mark Gatiss (BBC's Sherlock) as Menenius, and Danish actress Birgitte Sørensen as Virgilia. When an old adversary threatens Rome, the city calls once more on her hero and defender: Coriolanus. But he has enemies at home too, and as he returns from the battlefield, he must deal with both rivals and a starving citizenry with an appetite for change. As performed in the 250-seat West End Theater, Shakespeare's masterpiece is less a chariot-charging epic than an intimate struggle for power. 180 min
'A scorching Tom Hiddleston leads Josie Rourke's tense, revelatory staging...a theatrical triumph.' - Variety
