King Lear, DVD


The vain King Lear casts his youngest daughter out after she refuses to prove her love for him, leaving his kingdom prey to the machinations of his two elder daughters.

Post-revolutionary Russian director Grigori Kozintzev provides a social context to Shakespeare's regal family drama, associating Lear's irresponsibility to his family with the neglect of his fellow countrymen.
