Once More Unto The Breach, Dear Friends...
From Kenneth Branagh in his masterful directorial debut, comes the classic adaptation of William Shakespeare's Henry V, winner of an Academy Award and 2 nominations.
Once an undisciplined prince, Henry has matured into the powerful King of England and has set off on a campaign to conquer France. But with the fate of the war uncertain, Henry must come to terms with what it means to be king and rally his men to victory...or to death.
