Synopsis

This compelling story of power and political intrigue portrays Richard III as England's most ruthless monarch, a charismatic malcontent who accedes to the throne through a delicious mix of treachery, seduction and murder. However, this adaptation is offered with a distinctive twist. Taking the characters and action out of Elizabethan times, the story is set in an imagined London of the 1930s. Richard speaks his famous lines as Shakespeare wrote them, even as he conquers the throne with media savvy, black-shirted thugs and heavy artillery.
