An all-star cast unite in Ralph Fiennes' directorial debut Coriolanus, released on DVD and Blu-Ray on 4th June 2012 by Lionsgate Home Entertainment.
This contemporary, action-packed version of Shakespeare's classic story of revenge stars Fiennes (The Hurt Locker, Great Expectations), Gerard Butler (Machine Gun Preacher, 300), Vanessa Redgrave (Anonymous, Atonement), Jessica Chastain (The Help, The Tree of Life), James Nesbitt (Cherrybomb, Match Point) and Brian Cox (Rise Of The Planet of the Apes, The Bourne Supremacy).
The common people of Rome are hungry. Riots are widespread and the people's fury rapidly becomes focused on the Republic's most courageous general, Caius Martius (Fiennes), who has publicly expressed his scorn for their suffering.
But Rome is also at war with the Volsces, a neighbouring state whose guerrilla-style army is led by Martius's sworn enemy, Tullus Aufidius (Butler). Following the latest, brazen Volscian taunt, Rome must retaliate. When the people of Rome turn on the heroic Caius Martius he finds an unlikely ally in his most-hated enemy and together they plot a heinous revenge...
Coriolanus is a bloody, but timeless, tale of war and revenge set against a modern backdrop.
