Anthony Hopkins re-teams with his The Dresser director for his spin on William Shakespeare's classic play, here set in a fictional present day and co-starring Emma Thompson and Florence Pugh.
"The 80-year-old King Lear divides his kingdom among his daughters, Goneril, Regan and Cordelia, according to their affection for him. When his youngest daughter, Cordelia, refuses to flatter him, hurt and angry Lear banishes her. With that fateful decision, family and state collapse into chaos and warfare." (Official synopsis)
