In Ralph Fiennes’ directorial debut, watch the UK trailer for CORIOLANUS starring Fiennes, Gerard Butler, Vanessa Redgrave, James Nesbitt, Jessica Chastain and Brian Cox. The film showed In Competition at the 61st Berlin International Film Festival earlier this year.

As to CORIOLANUS’ Academy Awards hopes, Anne Thompson of indieWIRE recently wrote, “Vanessa Redgrave, as his Machiavellian mother Volumnia, could win the Oscar for best supporting actress. She is extraordinary as a naturally beautiful older woman who is powerful yet maternal, wicked yet loving, logical yet insane.”

Based on William Shakespeare’s tragedy, The Weinstein Company will release the film in the U.S. on December 2, 2011.

Synopsis:

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.
