The Winter's Tale 2015

Judi Dench and Kenneth Branagh star in Shakespeare's great tragicomedy, recorded live at the Garrick. King Leontes of Sicily appears to have it all: wealth, power and a loving, heavily pregnant wife, Queen Hermione. But when he suspects her of having an affair with his friend the King of Bohemia, he sets in motion a terrible train of events. This was the first in a series of exceptional plays from the Kenneth Branagh Theatre Company at cinemas under the Branagh Theatre Live banner over the next year. The recorded broadcast was directed by Benjamin Caron, who previously collaborated with Branagh on Wallander. Starring a remarkable group of actors, featuring Judi Dench as Paulina, alongside Tom Bateman (Florizel), Jessie Buckley (Perdita), Hadley Fraser (Polixenes), Miranda Raison (Hermione) and Kenneth Branagh as Leontes.
