CORIOLANUS (2011) by Ralph Fiennes: 10/10

24 Words or Less: Brutal, political and deeply felt examination of a soldier. Understood whole story despite not having read the play. Oedipal and homoerotic undertones. Fiennes exceptional.

Best bit: Vanessa Redgrave as Coriolanus’ mother pleading with him. Tour de force.
