Kevin Spacey and Sam Mendes back together!

An amazing documentary chronicling the worldwide tour of Richard III with Kevin Spacey. NOW is an intimate look behind the scenes at the preparation of one of today's most beloved actor (Spacey) and director (Mendes). Jeremy Whelehan's documentary provides a unique alternative to modern Shakespeare along with some beautiful visuals - DON'T MISS THIS ONE!

Wonderful study of Shakespeare, theater and Kevin Spacey

Lovely dessert after a House of Cards binge. See the origins of Congressman Frank in Spacey’s interpretation of Richard III.


Pretty weak, just a promo disguised as a documentary.
