Director Richard Loncraine (The Missionary) gives us a cinematic version of Ian McKellen’s heralded 1990 National Theatre stage performance as the vile but fascinating Richard III (1995). Updating Shakespeare’s most entertaining history play to the 1930s, the filmmakers offer a slick-haired fascist Richard, disturbingly recognizable as one of our ambitious own, coldly, pleasurably eliminating his enemies and scooping up the widow (Kristin Scott Thomas) of one victim even as she’s burying him. Also starring Annette Bening, Jim Broadbent, Robert Downey Jr., Nigel Hawthorne, John Wood and a redoubtable pair of Downton-ites, Maggie Smith and Jim Carter.
