Shakespeare's Tragedies: King Lear

1999 Rated NR 3hr 20m

Brian Blessed directs and stars in this 1999 production of William Shakespeare's "King Lear," a timeless and heart-wrenching tragedy about an aging father who must divide his vast kingdom among his three daughters. When he asks the girls to prove their love for him, his youngest daughter (Phillipa Peak) can't express her feelings in words, and Lear erroneously takes her silence for indifference.
