Boring and tedious story about two completely self involved narcissists. Couldn't understand half of what was said, and didn't really want to, but there were no subtitles available. I kept watching just in case it got interesting, but it never did.

A wonderfully acted drama with Ian MacLellan and Anthony Hopkins enacting their roles with passion and subtly. It's set in a theatre and mostly the dressing room which adds to the claustrophobia of the play. this highlights how tight and insular the actors are as they work towards putting on a performance of King Lear. The play of course echoes King Lear as Hopkins dominates the acolytes around him. Really a 'tour de force'.
