Coriolanus (Fiennes) is a valiant Roman soldier whose contempt for the masses causes him to fall victim to the city's scheming politicians. Fiennes, debuting as director, creates a modern day, war-torn Rome using Serbian locations, restless cinematography and an excellent cast, making this a powerful and resonant reimagining of Shakespeare's tragedy.
