Kenneth Branagh’s THE WINTER’S TALE screening
December 4, 2019$15
This December, Circle Cinema will be screening the re-released Kenneth Branagh’s award-winning production of The Winter’s Tale.
Recorded live in 2015, Shakespeare’s timeless tragicomedy of obsession and redemption is reimagined in a production co-directed by Rob Ashford and Kenneth Branagh, following their triumphant staging of Macbeth in Manchester and Manhattan.
King Leontes appears to have everything: power, wealth, a loving family and friends. But sexual jealousy sets in motion chain of events with tragic consequences…
The Winter’s Tale stars a remarkable group of actors, featuring Judi Dench as Paulina, alongside Tom Bateman (Florizel), Jessie Buckley (Perdita), Hadlex Fraser (Polixenes), Miranda Raison (Hermione) and Kenneth Branagh as Leontes.
