One of Shakespeare’s enduring plays, and regularly on school syllabus. There has never been a feature film, making this the definitive version.
The Sicilian Kingpin of produced narcotics has it all. But, in a moment of jealous madness, he accuses his pregnant wife of adultery with his best friend (another drug lord). He banishes them from his kingdom. The fallout is devasting – his son dies, he denies parenthood to his newborn child, banishing it to be killed. His wife also dies.
This is a timely tale of a man’s attitude and ego destroying himself – this adaptation touches the zeitgeist.
