When you rule with an iron fist and a heart of steel, you pay with your flesh and blood.
In this adaptation of shakespeare's king lear, self-made ranch tycoon john lear divides his holdings among his daughters but finds that once they have his property, they reject him.
Editor's Note
Ranch tycoon John Lear (Patrick Stewart) divides his considerable property between two daughters (Marcia Gay Harden and Lauren Holly). A battle breaks out for the land and Lear learns the value of peace. This reworking of William Shakespeare's KING LEAR is set in a Western milieu with stunning Texas scenery. Using a post-Alamo setting, this adaptation surprisingly retains the complexity of Shakespeare's characters. Originally aired on cable, the film also features terrific supporting work from Roy Scheider.
