Tom Hiddleston (Thor, The Avengers) stars in this Donmar Warehouse production of Shakespeare's political thriller Coriolanus, broadcast as part of National Theatre Live, the series that brings the best of British theater to movie screens worldwide. Coriolanus, Rome's greatest warrior, displays a stubborn hubris that spurs him in battle but alienates the common people at home when he becomes a politician. Raised to be a hero by his prideful mother, Coriolanus refuses to compromise, even to save his own life. Exiled from his country, the warrior returns to what he knows best, vowing to take bloody revenge on the people who rejected him. Only the love and conviction of his family can overcome his hunger for vengeance and save Rome from its former hero. This is a screening of the London theater production that was taped for broadcast.

Enjoyable and engaging play with 12 Prime Ministers appearing throughout the current reign of Queen Elizabeth II. Even if you're not a UK history buff, several Prime Ministers everyone will know about and enjoy the interactions between The Queen and her PM. If you're a Helen Mirren fan, this is a must see. The announcer was the only drawback of the National Theater Live event.
