Synopsis

Actor Kenneth Branagh made his debut as a director in this screen adaptation of Shakespeare's patriotic play. As well as his duties behind the camera, he stars here as King Henry, formerly seen as the callow Prince Hal who becomes a man as he leads his troops over to France to capture its throne against seemingly insurmountable odds. Remaining relatively true to the Bard, Branagh still manages to set his adaptation apart from Laurence Olivier's earlier morale-boosting version by highlighting the more dubious aspects of Henry‘s campaign, while his cast list is an impressive roster of British acting talent.

What our educators say

"It really is a chance for us to open children's minds to the power of film not just as a vehicle for entertainment but also as a way in to understanding their own world and the worlds of people whose lives are very different."

- Marlon Perkins, Teacher, Whitstable and Seasalter Endowed CofE Junior School, Kent
