Well-known for his acting skills, Ralph Fiennes adds his directing debut to his portrayal of the title role in this Shakespeare saga, adapted by John Logan ("Gladiator").
Coriolanus is a military man whose bid to secure other Romans' support in his pursuit of a more powerful position backfires - big-time - resulting in his banishment from the city. He then makes a pact with an enemy (Gerard Butler) to exact his revenge. Vanessa Redgrave, Jessica Chastain and Brian Cox also star. DVD extras: "making-of" documentary; audio commentary by Fiennes. *** (R: GV) (Also on Blu-ray and Movies on Demand)Copyright © 2014, Los Angeles Times
