British Film Institute and British Council present Shakespeare on Film, a global tour of Shakespeare on screen as part of Shakespeare Lives.

Richard III (Richard Loncraine, 1995, rated 15) stars Ian Mckellen, Robert Downey Jr., Maggie Smith and Jim Broadbent. Shakespeare’s immortal tale of ambition, lust and murderous treachery is brilliantly modernized in this 20th century masterpiece, set in a fascist, comic-book vision on 1930s London. Based on Richard Eyre’s acclaimed stage production.

This film is appropriate for viewing by people aged 15 years and above.
