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.

As someone that has only been on Netflix for the past week, I am really happy with the quality of the historical fiction series that I've seen so far. From "The Crown" to "The Last Kingdom" and "Outlander" and many more still waiting for me to watch, I can only believe that "The King" will be just as good.

That's all I know... so far.

I have seen "The King" today (the German version) and yes, it is a very intense film, quite brutal too, with a surprising end.

Can't say anything about the accents or something, since I watched it in German language, the only folks with accents were the French there.

The actors are very good! All big roles were exquistely played.

The historical correctness: Well, the main battle was a mixture of Agincourt and Crécy and there were other "freedoms".

But for sure an interesting King Henry: A man at the end of the Medievals - modern and antiquated.

So, in short: Yes, I give 5 stars!

The film is well acted and the costumes/sets are wonderful ,its not for everyone and it does take artistic licence with some of the historical events .The battles yes are quite brutal and violent.

I didn't like Robert Pattinson as the Dauphin.

I've seen The King listed as being available on Netflix and plan on watching it soon. As I'm using my son's account, I've promised to only use Netflix during the late night/early morning hours and I have been glued to Netflix after watching all available episodes of The Last Kingdom, Outlander and now in the process of watching all four seasons of Reign.

If The King is anywhere near the quality of those shows I've already seen, I *know* I'm going to enjoy watching it. Its good to be retired and able to watch all night and sleep all day should I want to.

It is kind of weird to ask a French/American actor to play the British monarch and a British actor to play the French crown prince

And the fictional character of Sir John Falstaff was played by an Australian actor.

At least Lily-Rose Depp is half French playing Catherine de Valois

Just saw this. As others have said it is violent & it does plays fast & loose with historical events.

Very different from the Olivier & Branagh films but just as good in its own way.

Y'know, something has occurred to me in regards to these historical dramas. Even though they may not be sticking straight to the historical facts as a documentary would and there's a lot of fiction to make the story more interesting and smooth flowing, it does nudge the viewer to become curious enough to actually want to look into the *real and factual* history behind these people portrayed in the show.

Yes I'm sure you're right about that. Anything that gets people interested is all to the good in my opinion even if I do shout at the tv when, for example, yet another film shows Elizabeth Tudor & Mary Stuart having a meeting
