Performers, Cast and Crew:
Shakespeare's tragedy of an old king who prematurely divides his kingdom is one of his greatest creations, as the old man's best efforts are transformed into sibling rivalry, madness, and murder. This production features sets and costumes based on the original Globe Theater presentations of Shakespeare's own time, to produce one of the most authentic and clear versions of this great play ever filmed.
Shakespeare's brilliant tale of a proud king who realizes too late that he disowned the one daughter who truly loved him -- and put himself in the hands of the two children who will lead him to tragedy.
