Australian Filmmaker David Michod (Animal Kingdom) directs this epic adaptation of Shakespeare’s Henry IV and Henry V. Fan fave Timothee Chalamet (Lady Bird, Call Me by Your Name) stars as wayward Prince Hal, alongside Joel Egerton, Robert Pattinson, Ben Medelsohn and Thomasin McKenzie.

The King is the story of Hal (Timothy Chalamet), wayward prince and heir to the English throne. Crowned King Henry V after his tyrannical father dies, the young king must navigate palace politics, the war his father left behind, and the emotional strings of his past life.

Michod brings heft, grit and gore to this famous story, emphasising the horror of war and the corrupting influence of power.
