A banished hero of rome allies with a sworn enemy to take his revenge on the city.
Editor's Note
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.

Expert Review Coriolanus - DVD Review
By: Pat Padua Blogcritics.org Reviews
Published on: 6/6/2012 10:25 AM
For his first effort as a director, Ralph Fiennes has set his eyes on one of Shakespeare’s lesser-known plays. Thanks to his efforts, this infrequently performed history play should not remain obscure for long. Coriolanus is a completely modern retelling of a hot-headed mama’s boy who defended Rome, was banished by his countrymen, and sought his revenge. As inventive as Fiennes film is, set on a modern military stage with cell phones and talk shows and Skype, his Coriolanus stays faithful to the Bard’s text, and wrangles a cast of actors with rich voices that can handle the complex language better than in many adaptations....read the full review
