Olivier's King Lear

Streaming Video - 2009
Rate this:
Without doubt the Lear of the century, this performance surpasses the skill of the critics to praise it; its all-star cast and crew have won every award that exists for performance and production. More important, the production makes a taut, compressed, and difficult play into a work that reaches out to modern audiences in its grip on the elemental human emotions-emotions common to ancient Celts and modern Americans, rowdy Elizabethan playgoers and today's Shakespearean scholars.
Publisher: New York, N.Y. : Films Media Group, [2009], c1983
