The fall of an empire. The descent of a man.
|Academy Award winners Anthony Hopkins and Jessica Lange ignite the screen in a strikingly original "coup de cinema" (New York Times). Titus is a "wild ride" (Chicago Tribune)--a shocking journey into the depths of the human heart--a place where vengeance and passion reign supreme. A film by Julie Taymor, acclaimed creator and director of Broadway's The Lion King.|
"...coup de cinema... The New York Times
Editor's NoteBased on Shakespeare's TITUS ANDRONICUS (one of the Bard's lesser-known and most gruesome works), director Taymor (Broadway's THE LION KING) brings this adaptation to life with dazzling imagery and haunting immediacy. Titus (Hopkins) is a victorious Roman general who makes two mistakes: supporting the wily Saturninus (Cumming) as the new Emperor, and wronging Tamora, Queen of the Goths (Lange), by killing her eldest son. Murder follows murder as the tides of fate change, as Tamora is aided by her two reckless sons and her Moor lover, Aaron (Lennix). The body count is raised higher and higher until Titus finally holds a very special dinner banquet. Taymor's bold visual sense verges on absurdity, but her sense of morality, as well as powerful acting by Hopkins and company, combine to tell a powerful, violent tale.
