64th Annual Hofstra Shakespeare Festival presents Shakespeare on Film Comments

The Hofstra University Department of Drama and Dance presents Shakespeare on Film, a special showing of the film Coriolanus as part of the 64th Annual Hofstra Shakespeare Festival. Coriolanus is  directed by Ralph Fiennes and stars Gerard Butler and Ralph Fiennes with Vanessa Redgrave and Jessica Chastain.

From the NY TIMES 12/1/2011:

"Mr. Fiennes has made smart choices here, notably by surrounding himself with a strong secondary cast…and by hiring the cinematographer Barry Ackroyd. Mr. Ackroyd, who shot “The Hurt Locker,” gives “Coriolanus” a visual density that complements the bright opulence of Martius’s mansion yet can pick faces out of the fog of war and the darkest shadows…Together they bring this world alive, closing the centuries-long distance between the writing of the play and this interpretation. The language lives, as do the people, who are present enough that it’s almost a surprise that no one brandishes that timely protest sign, “Occupy Rome.”
