Ralph Fiennes stars and directs his version of William Shakespeare’s Coriolanus. He’s teamed up with Brian Cox, Jessica Swain, Vanessa Regrave and Gerard Butler as the Voliscan general Tullus Aufidius. Fiennes plays the titular Coriolanus, a Roman general who is banished from the city after he causes a riot. He allies himself with Aufidius to take revenge upon Rome.
Fiennes modernizes the play and puts it in a kind of futuristic/modern version of Rome.
