Entertainment Reviews:

Chicago Sun-Times - 02/01/2012
3.5 stars out of 4 -- "One of the pleasures of Fiennes' film is that the screenplay by John Logan makes room for as much of Shakespeare's language as possible..."
Sight and Sound - 02/01/2012
"Fiennes creates a pitiless world without refuge, where neither the soft nor the unbending can survive."
Rolling Stone - 02/02/2012
3.5 stars out of 4 -- "Fiennes, as star and commander, pulls of a triumph....Redgrave's towering performance is a tour de force that carries the film to glory."

Product Description:

Ralph Fiennes' directorial debut, CORIOLANUS, scripted by John Logan, updates one of Shakespeare's more difficult plays without sacrificing the Bard's original dialogue. Set in modern times, the movie stars Fiennes as the title character, a fierce General able to fight Rome's most dreaded enemies as well as quell civil unrest from a lack of food. When politicians convince Coriolanus to become a political leader, his natural fierceness and lack of political instincts lead to him being disgraced by other politicians and eventually forced to leave Rome after being branded a traitor. He then joins with his former enemies to invade Rome, and the only person who may be able to talk him out of this revenge plan is his mother (Vanessa Redgrave). The film, which features a portion of the play's dialogue transferred into the mouths of talking-heads on television news shows, played at the 2011 Toronto International Film Festival.
