Ralph Fiennes makes Shakespeare modern and bloody brilliant.
— The Hollywood Reporter

What remains, in distilled form, is the poetry of violence and contempt — the source of the play’s unfailing reputation for political threat and mischief.
— New Yorker

Fiennes takes one of the playwright’s lesser-known works, originally set in the 5th century B.C., updates it to current times and imbues it with a gritty blood-spattered fierceness.
— USA Today

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 refuses to support him, Coriolanus’s anger prompts a riot that 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.

Composer Ilan Eshkeri’s dramatic score will be presented on one disc and will be mixed with dialogue highlights from Shakespeare’s play on the second.
