★★★★★ ‘Ian McKellen reigns supreme in this triumphant production.’ — Daily Telegraph

Captured live from London’s West End in 2018, see Ian McKellen’s  ‘extraordinarily moving portrayal’ (Independent) of King Lear in  cinemas.

Considered by many to be the greatest tragedy ever written, King Lear  sees two ageing fathers – one a King, one his courtier – reject the  children who truly love them. Their blindness unleashes a tornado of  pitiless ambition and treachery, as family and state are plunged into a  violent power struggle with bitter ends.

Jonathan Munby directs this ‘nuanced and powerful’ (The Times)  contemporary retelling of Shakespeare’s tender, violent, moving and  shocking play.
