Coriolanus ★★★☆☆

Coriolanus is of one of William Shakespeare's most complex plays, making it a rather ambitious adaptation for Ralph Fiennes to choose as his directorial debut. Despite being one of Shakespeare's lesser known tragedies, its tale of greed and power is certainly strong enough to build the foundations of any film. Starring Jessica Chastain, Vanessa Redgrave, Gerard Butler, Brian Cox and Fiennes himself (in no less than the starring role), Coriolanus (2011) boasts a cast more than capable of delivering the Bard's multifaceted prose with the reverence it deserves.
