Editorial Reviews

William Shakespeare's unrelenting King Lear is considered to be one of the playwright's most enduring and haunting works for the stage. The challenge of playing its title role has long fallen to some of the greatest actors of our time. This telecast marks Sir Ian McKellen's return to the Royal Shakespeare Company, that has resulted in a tour-de-force performance as Lear. Co-directed for television by Sir Trevor Nunn and Chris Hunt.
