  • Overview
  • Details
William Shakespeare's intense tale about family dysfunction is brought to life in this impressive "Masterpiece Theatre" production starring Ian Holm as the titular royal -- a powerful and selfish king who, in the winter of his life, loses his mind. Two of his daughters (Barbara Flynn and Amanda Redman), bitter at their mistreatment, encourage the disintegration, and everyone soon realizes the sacrifices they've made for Lear.
