Synopsis:
A brutal civil war has erupted in England with the Houses of Lancaster and York battling for control of the throne. Amid the turmoil, the despotic Richard, Duke of Gloucester (Ian McKellen) plots his own route to power, deviously scheming a murderous agenda that will lead to his installation as dictator monarch. Steeped in fascist iconography, the film openly draws from the aesthetic of the Third Reich, a stylistic choice that emphasizes the pure evil at the heart of Richard's agenda.

Modern Shakespeare - Richard III review by NO

Spoiler Alert
23/08/2020

Strange but interesting film.Acting was good but I couldnt see the point in making it modern.The death of Rivers was weird & why was only one

prince murdered by Tyrell ,what about his brother? Jim Carter (Hastings) was quite slim & young whereas Maggie Smith looked as she did in

Downton Abbey.Battersea Power station was easily recogniseable,as were other buildings.W orth seeing as a different slant on the Play.
