Two aging fathers – one a king, another his courtier – reject the children who truly love them. Their blindness unleashes a tornado of pitiless ambition and treachery, as family and state are plunged into a violent power struggle with bitter ends. Catch this powerful contemporary retelling of King Lear, considered by many as the greatest tragedy ever written, on the big screen at the Esplanade Theatre.
