The classic tetralogy of William Shakespeare’s most celebrated history plays.

Beginning in the year 1399, the plays deal with events affecting the monarchy during a 16-year period, where the ruling orders of Richard II, Henry IV and Henry V find themselves beset by rebellion, greed and war.

This stunning adaptation tells the story of three Kings, Richard II, Henry IV & Henry V and their battle for survival. Shakespeare's epic yet intimate plays are filmed in the visually breathtaking landscape and architecture of the period. Superb performances by Ben Whishaw, Tom Hiddleston & Jeremy Irons are not to be missed.
