The Hollow Crown: The Complete Series DVD Review


Synopsis: From executive producer Sam Mendes (Skyfall, American Beauty) comes a stunning adaptation of four of Shakespeare’s most celebrated history plays: Richard II, Henry IV (Part 1 and Part 2), and Henry V. Academy Award winner Jeremy Irons (The Borgias), Tom Hiddleston (The Avengers), and Ben Whishaw (Skyfall) in his award-winning role as Richard II star in this epic tale of three kings, their battle for survival, and the rise and fall of a dynasty.

Review: If you've ever wondered what a dark, realistic and well set Shakespearean story would look like, its the Hollow Crown series.  This DVD collects Richard III, Henry IV and Henry V.  These epic tellings of the classic Shakespeare plays feature astoundingly fantastic actors.  The production values are extremely high on these and they're so faithful to the source material that no purest can complain.  This is a fantastic and entertaining way to experience Shakespeare that I recommend for anyone from high school age up to adult.

Interest Range: Drama
