Shakespeare’s Richard III is one of his best known and most performed plays. It has also inspired many films. Mr. Jordan offers us a review of the play, with its deep insights into the uses of language to manipulate, confuse, and control, and of how creative directors have staged this gripping drama of a dynastic struggle for power in England. But he’ll also explore the translation of the play to film, including one made as early as 1915. The psychological richness of this great drama moves well to the screen, and here’s a chance to learn about how the shift has been accomplished. Let OLLI and Mr. Jordan show you how King Richard’s skillful machinations have been projected vividly on the big screen.
