War hero general Caius Martius Coriolanus (Fiennes) is poised to become leader of the republic, but political opponents orchestrate his downfall and banishment. Exiled, the bitter warrior forms an alliance with former enemy Aufidius (Butler) and returns home at the head of an invading army.
Exciting, ironic, with assured direction, accomplished performances and the tension of topical themes, this is Shakespeare as relevant as you like it.
