Just saw Coriolanus at Century Landmark, which despite the noise from Bally’s upstairs, was an excellent movie. Ralph Fiennes and John Logan do an excellent job of updating Shakespeare’s play to a modern setting. Unlike other adaptations of Shakespearian plays, it is not a total modernization, rather a current setting with Shakespeare’s dialogue. Set in “a place that calls itself Rome”, Ralph Fiennes plays Roman general Caius Martius Coriolanus who is known for being an excellent solider and leader, but an enemy to the people of his empire, stripping their liberties and disrespecting them. When it comes time for him to be elected office though, he must win the respect of the people. An excellent debut film from Ralph Fiennes, I certainly look forward to more of his work in the future.
