Tom Hiddleston (The Avengers, The Night Manager) plays the little role in Shakespeare’s searing tragedy of political manipulation and revenge.
Directed by Josie Rourke (Les Liasons Dangereuses), and filmed live on stage in 2014, Coriolanus now returns exclusively to the big screen.
When an old adversary threatens Rome, the city calls once more on her hero and defender: Coriolanus. But he has enemies at home too. As famine threatens the city, the citizens’ hunger swells to an appetite for change, and on returning from the field, Coriolanus must confront the march of realpolitik and the voice of an angry people.
