Caius Martius "Coriolanus" (Ralph Fiennes), a revered and feared Roman General is at odds with the city of Rome and his fellow citizens. Pushed by his controlling and ambitious mother Volumnia (Vanessa Redgrave) to seek the exalted and powerful position of Consul, he is loath to ingratiate himself with the masses whose votes he needs in order to secure the office. When the public refuses to support him, Coriolanus's anger prompts a riot that culminates in his expulsion from Rome. The banished hero then allies himself with his sworn enemy Tullus Aufidius (Gerard Butler) to take his revenge on the city.
HitFix Reviews and Ratings
BRalph Fiennes demonstrates a unique vision as a director with his modern adaptation of Shakespeare's "Coriolanus" and Vanessa Redgrave gives a stand out performance, but film doesn't pack emotional punch it wants the audience to leave the theater with.
