Story


Caius Martius 'Coriolanus' (Ralph Fiennes), a revered and feared Roman General is at odds with the city of Rome and his fellow citizens. Pushed by his controlling and ambitious mother Volumnia (Vanessa Redgrave) to seek the exalted and powerful position of Consul, he is loath to ingratiate himself with the masses whose votes he needs in order to secure the office. When the public refuses to support him, Coriolanus's anger prompts a riot that culminates in his expulsion from Rome. The banished hero then allies himself with his sworn enemy Tullus Aufidius (Gerard Butler) to take his revenge on the city.

REVIEWS BY CRITICS

“..neat trick..”
by Peter Travers [Rolling Stone]
“..this film has a ripped-from-TV antic buzz of foreign wars, economic troubles and pandering politics..”
by Liam Lacey [Globe and Mail]
“..deserves to be seen, however, especially among those who enjoy Shakespeare without considering themselves purists..”
by James Berardinelli [ReelViews]
