Reviews
Starring Tatsuya Nakadai, Akira Terao, Jinpachi Nezu

A declining monarch resolves to split his kingdom among his three sons, initiating a cycle of betrayal, madness, and war. Adapting Shakespeare’s King Lear to feudal Japan, Kurosawa’s decade-in-the-making epic represents the master director at the height of his ambition and abilities.

This screening will be presented in conjunction with a Cinema Classics Seminar, taught by Jacob Mazer. Seating for screening-only attendees will begin at 1:00 pm. Just want to see the film? Purchase your tickets from this page.
