Movie Info

The Bard goes digital as independent director John Farrell brings William Shakespeare's +Richard the Second to the screen for the first time ever while simultaneously upping the creative ante by telling the digital video-shot tale in modern dress. Even in modern times Shakespeare's tale of political intrigue and a reckless king who loses it all still resonates powerfully, and with a cast that includes such emerging talents as Frank O'Donnell, Katina Delejade, Matte Osian, and Tom Turbiville, this film shows just how timeless the enduring playwright's words truly are.
