Robert Pattinson is a very strange choice as The Dauphin of France.


Johnny Depp's daughter,Lilly plays Catherine de Valois and Philippa of England will also get some onscreen attention.

In difficult times - and in those is England - a patriotic play can work wonders. "We few, we happy few, we band of brothers..."

On a lighter note: When I still was quite young, I did see a movie on TV (in German, but very well synchronized) and I thought to myself, "Yeah, what a cool film about knights and stuff and how funny, that they speak so antiquated - but it is a movie about the medievals, so, I am ok with it... a funny idea of the director..."

Well, it turned out to be a Shakespeare movie from Kenneth Brannagh, "Henry V.".

So, I am looking forward to this movie here, "The King"!

It is going to be a hit. May Timothée Chalamet win so many awards for this. His acting is so powerful.

It’s about king Henry V.

This film looks interesting and I hope it’s just as good as Outlaw King, which I really liked.

Thanks. It certainly looks interesting.

Edit:
Hmmm, I just noticed that it will be shown on Netflix. Pity.
