Henry VIII: Shakespeare's Globe Theatre DVD (Widescreen 1.77)
The Tudor Court is locked in a power struggle between its nobles and the Machiavellian Cardinal Wolsey, the King's first minister and the country's most conspicuous symbol of Catholic power. Wolsey's ambition knows no bounds and when his chief ally, Queen Katherine, interferes in the King's romance with Ann Bullen, he brings ruin upon himself, the Queen and centuries of English obedience to Rome. "Henry VIII" played to critical acclaim at the Globe in 2010: "Rosenblatt and his fine cast bring out copious quantities of emotion and humor. I've rarely seen the Globe's space used better than this" The Times.
