Filmed in Rome, Dominic West stars in a film from Shakespeare's Globe's The Complete Walk
Filmed at Ostia Antica, Rome, Dominic West stars in this short film from Shakespeare's Globe's The Complete Walk.
Caius Marcius, a brilliant Roman general, takes victory against the Volscian city of Corioli, and is honoured with the name ‘Coriolanus.’ However, his contempt for the common people of Rome mean his fortunes are short lived, as the tribune orders him to be banished. Exiled from Rome, Coriolanus makes an allegiance with his old enemy Aufidius and swears vengeance against the city he once loved.
Desperate for mercy, Coriolanus’ mother Volumnia visits him and dissuades her son from destroying Rome. Coriolanus brokers peace between the Volscians and the Romans, only to be killed by Aufidius.
First seen as part of Shakespeare's Globe's The Complete Walk over one magical weekend alongside London's Thames in April 2016 in this anniversary year. Some 37 specially-made 10 minute films were screened along the iconic 2.5 mile stretch between Westminster Bridge and Tower Bridge.
