Movie Info

Shakespeare's tragedy, made for British television, is given a full-blooded rendition here with the great Laurence Olivier in the title role and a stellar cast to support him, in the tale of a king torn apart by the ambition and treachery within his family and by his own pride. ~ Mark Hockley, Rovi


Critic Reviews for King Lear

  • Esta produção para a tevê americana tem péssima transferência de imagem e se beneficia apenas da tour de force de Olivier. No entanto, é longa e cansativa demais.

    All the actresses are brilliant and the play is well filmed but it would all be for naught if not for Olivier's astounding performance.

    It's good. I like Brian Blessed's Lear better.
