I am ridiculously excited for this movie. It's Ralph Fiennes' directorial debut, it stars him, Gerald Butler in "I'm an actual fucking actor" mode, Vanessa Redgrave, Brian Cox, Jessica Chastain, and South African actor John Kani -- not to mention a host of European actors (it was filmed in Belgrade).

It puts a modern twist on one of Shakespeare's more brutal plays, and Fiennes seems to have captured this mix of ideas quite well. The trailer's a little too action-movie-ish, but still. It looks pretty damn phenomenal.


Also: Goddamn, Ms. Redgrave. The woman is grace, defined and brought to life. Also, I saw an article recently proclaiming Jessica Chastain as "the next Meryl Streep," which is as ridiculous as naming a 20 year-old basketball player as "the next Michael Jordan." There will never be another Meryl Streep, because, well, she's Meryl fucking Streep. But Chastain is making some seriously solid choices and turning in some outstanding performances.

All in all, this looks outstanding.
