For the first time, William Shakespeare’s “Richard the Second” has been adapted to the big screen in Jon Farrell’s stunning digital feature. This peerless tale of a reckless and indecisive king who loses his throne and his life provides a devastating study of political intrigue, which continues to resonate with power and fury.
Imaginatively shot in a modern dress interpretation, “Richard the Second” is blessed by a gifted young cast which includes many up-and-coming talents: Matte Osian (”Conspiracy Theory”), Katina Delejade (”The Haunting”), Frank O’Donnell (”Welcome to Collinwood”) and Tom Turbiville (”Remember the Titans”).
Stars: Matte Osian, Barry Smith, Ellen Zachos, Kadina Delejalde, William Martin, Beth Goldman, D.J. Kerzner, Deb Snyder, Dai Kornberg, Lisa Beth Kovetz, Gary Brenner, Neil Tadken, David W. Frank, Tom Turbiville, Frank O’Donnell, Craig Alan Edwards, Daniel Maher, Robert F. McCafferty
