MTV's Sexiest Man Alive Tom Hiddleston heats up the Donmar Warehouse production of Shakespeare's political thriller Coriolanus
. Known for playing supervillain Loki in the Thor
films and The Avengers
, Hiddleston turns his talents to the stage to play both hero and villain. He takes on the title role of Coriolanus, Rome's greatest warrior, whose hubris spurs him on in battle, but alienates the common people at home when his victories win him a powerful political office. 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 prodigal son. This screening of the London theater production was taped for broadcast as part of National Theatre Live, the series that brings the best of British theater to movie screens worldwide.
