Welcome to the Celluloid Fiends podcast! Hosts Moe Long (Tech Up Your Life, Cup of Moe) and Wes Clifton (W.D. Clifton, Brentwood) review the 1989 Kenneth Brannagh-directed "Henry V." Adapting William Shakespeare's beloved play of the same name, Brannagh's directorial debut is both a faithful recreation and unique project with a grim tone.
Phenomenally well acted, Brannagh stars as the titular King Henry V with the likes of Ian Holm, Derek Jacobi, Brian Blessed, Judi Dench, Emma Thompson, and Christian Bale peppering the star-studded cast. Listen as Moe and Wes talk Brannagh's "Henry V," discuss Shakespeare's influence on cinema, and talk favorite Shakespearean movie adaptations.
