Repertory Series ArchiveThe Bard Unbound: Shakespeare on Screen

Henry V (1989)

Buy Tickets


(1989) dir Kenneth Branagh w/Branagh, Derek Jacobi, Simon Shepherd [137 min; DCP]
Kenneth Branagh’s big, brash, epic adaptation of one of the Bard’s most stirring histories was a sensation and pretty-much singlehandedly resurrected the idea of big screen Shakespeare.

“In this alert, rousing interpretation of Henry V, Branagh beats down the doors of high art and drags the sleeping bard into the light of modern day.” – Desson Thomson, Washington Post

“A stirring, gritty and enjoyable pic which offers a plethora of fine performances from some of the U.K.’s brightest talents.” – Variety
