King Leontes appears to have everything: power, wealth, a loving family and friends. But sexual jealousy sets in motion a chain of events with tragic consequences.
Shakespeare’s timeless tragicomedy of obsession and redemption was reimagined in a production co-directed by Rob Ashford and Kenneth Branagh. The production features a remarkable group of actors, including Judi Dench as Paulina and Kenneth Branagh as Leontes, alongside Tom Bateman (Florizel), Jessie Buckley (Perdita), Hadley Fraser (Polixenes), and Miranda Raison (Hermione).
This is an encore screening, filmed live in 2015 at The Garrick Theatre in London.
Filmed during a live event, the Live Cinema Series broadcasts offer audiences an equivalent to the best seat in the house, with incredibly detailed close-ups of the performers.
This screening has an approximate runtime of 3 hours.
