Coriolanus

What it's about:

Caius Martius "Coriolanus" (Ralph Fiennes), a revered and feared Roman General is at odds with the city of Rome and his fellow citizens.

Pushed by his controlling and ambitious mother Volumnia (Vanessa Redgrave) to seek the exalted and powerful position of Consul, he is loath to ingratiate himself with the masses whose votes he needs in order to secure the office.

When the public refuse to support him, Coriolanus’s anger prompts a riot which culminates in his expulsion from Rome. The banished hero then allies himself with his sworn enemy Tullus Aufidius (Gerard Butler) to take his revenge on the city.
 
What the critics thought:

"As a portrait of modern warfare, politics and propaganda, "Coriolanus" is intriguing, even if the gritty action sequences don't quite measure up to the realism of The Hurt Locker."
- Kerry Lengel, Arizona Republic


"You buy the concept, from start to finish, because it feels strong and purposeful and in sync with Shakespeare's own vision of a malleable, fickle populace and a leader raised by the ultimate stage mother."
- Michael Phillips, Chicago Tribune


"When Caius Martius heads into battle against the invading Volscians, we get 20-odd minutes of brutal street-fighting with RPGs and crackling automatic weapons. The film was shot in Serbia; dial a few decades back and it could have been set there."
- Ty Burr, Boston Globe

That Sugar Film is a highly entertaining and well-made documentary about a hot-button-topic but is undone entirely by the untrustworthy way it deals with its subject. Read More »
