Movie Info

Kevin Spacey, Sam Mendes and the Bridge Project Company go on the road in NOW: in the Wings on a World Stage. In over 200 performances, and across 3 continents, Kevin and the troupe reveal some of the most intimate moments behind the scenes of their staging of Shakespeare's classic tragedy, "Richard III." Their story and experiences weave around, and reflect on, excerpts from the play from their various locations, from Epidaurus to Doha, and provides a great opportunity for those who have never experienced Spacey on stage to witness his immersive and captivating interpretation of Richard III. NOW chronicles the first collaboration between Spacey and Mendes since both won Academy Awards (R) for their work on American Beauty. (c) KevinSpacey.com

All Critics (29) | Top Critics (15)

  • As if screening filmed plays in cinemas wasn't perverse enough, here's a making-of for a long-gone theatrical event: the production of Richard III by Sam Mendes's Bridge Project that toured worldwide.

    Top Critic
  • There is nothing that drives this film except a tone of inward-gazing self-importance, sweetened by the sentimental bonding of the play's cast and crew and Whelehan's touristy location shots.

    May 15, 2014 | Rating: 2/4
  • It's that rare film that captures and conveys the romance of the theatrical experience.

    May 8, 2014 | Full Review…
  • The camaraderie among the players, some of whom have interesting stories of their own, tends to shut out any sense of audience response, aside from the ovation that reliably greets the star as soon as he appears onstage.

    May 8, 2014 | Full Review…
  • Over the course of the film, a sense of the cast's camaraderie comes through, the almost family feeling that takes over among people thrown together in such intimate circumstances.
