Synopsis

Celebrated actor Al Pacino here tries to find a new way of looking at Shakespeare. The film features extracts from rehearsals and performances of Richard III, a historical tale of corruption and revenge, which is the most-produced of Shakespeare's plays. But this is also a documentary about Shakespeare and his work, his place in history, and how his topics remain relevant today. Pacino interviews a number of well-known actors, including Kenneth Branagh, Kevin Spacey and John Gielgud, to explain their attraction to Shakespeare and how they approach the material, in a film that breathes new life into a familiar subject.

What our educators say

"Some of them saw a clip from Wakolda (The German Doctor) on TV recently and really wanted to watch it. So I thought I’d take a chance, not expecting them to watch the whole film but the majority were absolutely gripped. "
