The set and effects were perfect, Langella was awesome, and the actress who played Cordelia was fantastic! I also really loved the villain Edmund, he did a great job.

Frank Langella was amazing as King Lear. He brought both his regal power and his subsequent madness to vivid life. This performance is a must see.

Saw it with my wife, we had great seats , Langella's performance was amazing and the story was easy to follow. I would recommend to read about story before watching it, it is easier to follow despite the spoiler effect. Oner Ayan
