Coriolanus, Donmar...
December 20, 2013

Tom Hiddleston returns to the London stage with a compelling performance. The violent and treacherous Roman general Coriolanus is one of Shakespeare’s most bloodthirsty creations, but Hiddleston focuses on his arrogance and elusive coolness. He does an impressive job of suggesting the emotional inadequacy of this self-deluding, impulsive loner – as well as the strange complexity of his motives.

December 22, 2013
