Description

Kenneth Branagh made his mark as an outstanding Shakespearean actor and director upon the release of Henry V, his first film. Branagh wrote the screen adaptation, starred in, and directed the film to astounding critical and popular acclaim, establishing him as a most gifted and versatile film artist. With a marvelous cast, including Richard Briers, Robbie Coltrane, Judi Dench, Ian Holm, Derek Jacobi, Alec McCowen, Geraldine McEwan, Paul Scofield, John Sessions, Robert Stephens, and Emma Thompson, Branagh brings the play into contemporary times, adding a darker and harsher sensibility. Included here are Branagh's screenplay and introduction, and dramatic stills from the film.show more
