THE KING SCREENING AT BACKLOT Hale to The King


Before Australian director David Michôd’s The King comes to Netflix in November, you have a rare opportunity to catch it on the big screen. For one week only, The Backlot Perth is screening the director of Animal Kingdom‘s latest film in limited release.

Based on the Shakespeare’s epic four play saga Henriad, The King is the story of Henry V’s rise to prominence in the midst of England’s Hundred Year War against France.

With a script written by David Michôd (The Rover) and Joel Edgerton (The Gift), The King has an impressive cast, including Robert Pattinson (Twilight, The Lighthouse), Timothée Chalamet (Call Me by Your Name), and Ben Mendelsohn (Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, Animal Kingdom). Edgerton himself plays popular Shakespearean tragic comic character Falstaff, which alone should be enough to pique curiosities.

The King is screening at The Backlot Perth from Friday October 11 to Wednesday October 16. Check website for details.
