The Hollow Crown: Richard III

 

The Hollow Crown: The Wars of the Roses is an epic saga told in three lavish film adaptations of Shakespeare’s history plays: Parts I and II of Henry VI and Richard III. Together, they span rebellion in France, the rise and fall of Joan of Arc, the terror of England’s Civil War and the deceitful dynastic murders culminating in the infamous reign of Richard III.

 

Richard III
In his quest for the crown, Richard plans the murder of his brother George. After the death of Edward IV, Richard’s path to the throne is clear, except for the princes in the tower. Starring Benedict Cumberbatch, Judi Dench and Phoebe Fox.
