Audience Reviews for Cymbeline

  • Jun 04, 2015
    A gritty, modern adaption of the Shakespearean play, Cymbeline is a compelling tale of hubris and tragedy. After his daughter secretly marries one of his henchmen, gang leader Cymbeline sends her away and prepares for a coming war with the police force. Starring Ed Harris, Milla Jovovich, Dakota Johnson, Penn Badgley, and Ethan Hawke, the casting is quite good, as are the performances; especially given the use of Shakespearean language. Additionally, director Michael Almereyda uses an interesting visual aesthetic, which paired with the score, creates an atmospheric tone. Cymbeline is a little plot heavy, but overall the film does a good job at delivering a bold new vision of one of Shakespeare's more undervalued works.
