An aging King invites disaster, when he abdicates to his corrupt, toadying daughters, and rejects his loving and honest one. As much as i love and respect Anthony Hopkins as an actor this movie was just simply god awful and confusing and his perfomance wasn't that great either i mean he was shouting more than acting also Emma Thompson was once again wasted in a forgettable role and perfomance. The rest of the actors didn't do it for me either, 'King Lear' is unfortunately a movie that you're going to forget sooner than perhaps later. (F)
The modern adaptations of classical masterpieces are bot particularly new, and not exclusive to theater as operas have been adapted for many years now to moderb settings.However UK seems to be surprisingly keen to the idea considering how much backlash these adaptations receive for not being set in medieval world commonly depicted by their authors, one of the similar adaptations that stand out in my mind is the Macbeth with Sir Patrick Stewart. King Lear is a new one and like aforementioned Macbeth it is extremely faithful to the play, the play's text is intact in its full glory while the setting is in an alternative modern day.King Lear's character was written with an extreme bitterness by Shakespeare as he wanted to make a darama in contrast to the life of the historic Celtic King Lear.
Sir Anthony Hopkins performs and delivers this character very well, so well you will be left speechless and amazed. The side characters are also portrayed very well as the case includes the likes of Emma Thompson and Andrew scott.
I believe that King Lear 2018 should be somewhere at top of anybodies "to watch list"
