Seems no-one is talking about netflix latest movie, The King.
At its heart, its a retelling of the same story that Kenneth Brannagh told about King Henry the 5th, this time around with Timothée Chalamet as King Henry , Joel Edgerton as Fallstaff, and Sean Harris , a character I dont recall from Brannaghs version, but its been quite a while.
EDIT: I just read that the producers DID change some things around in the story - phew, I really didnt remember that ending, but Im glad Im not just getting forgetsom.
Its a beautiful movie - both its cinematography, and the acting. Its also quite quiet, in a nice understated way ,that lends more credence to the actual words said, than if they were louder.
The actors are all believable, and I ended up watching all the movie in one go, something I rarely do, even though it was getting a bit late.
I didnt know Timothée Chalamet beforehand, but I was quite captivated by his calmness and charisma - I suspect this is someone we will see more off in other, more high-profile movies.
Now, I LOVE Brannaghs version, and actually didnt even know this was a new version of the same tale, but it does things in its own way, and is worth seeing if the subject matter is of interest to you.
anyways - I found it a shame that there was no talking about the movie here, and also wanted to point it towards you good folks, since there is quite the selection of things to watch these days.
I´d love to hear from others who saw it as well.
