Movie Info

Shakespeare's tragedy King Lear is transplanted to 19th century Texas in this made-for-cable drama. Patrick Stewart stars as John Lear, the wealthiest and most powerful rancher in the territory. Failing in body and mind, Lear decides to divide his vast property among his three daughters -- Suzannah (Marcia Gay Harden), Rebecca (Lauren Holly), and Claudia (Julie Cox) -- giving the most land to the girl who most persuasively professes her love and loyalty. While her mercenary sisters fawn all over

Fine enough fare for Shakespeare junkies who aren't too hard core about their history.

Juicy with familial betrayal, horse thievery, land grabbing, and illicit smooching...

Does not attain the catharsis of the great tragedy it uses as its model, but manages to deliver only melodrama.
