view all

Holm gives a powerful performance as the deluded monarch. The King comes to rue the day he banished faithful daughter Cordelia (Hamilton) in favor of dividing his kingdom between her manipulative siblings Goneril (Flynn) and Regan (Redman). As war engulfs his country, Lear descends into despair and madness.
