Richard III (McKellen)

Shakespeare's melodrama of treachery and murder during the War of the Roses is transplanted to the 1930s with evil King Richard (Ian McKellen) portrayed as a jackbooted fascist. Visually compelling, often shocking, with enough glamour, sex, drugs and violence to please any contemporary audience.
