http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Coriolanus

SYNOPSIS:

The play opens in Rome shortly after the expulsion of the Tarquin kings. There are riots in progress, after stores of grain were withheld from ordinary citizens. The rioters are particularly angry at Gaius Martius, a brilliant Roman general whom they blame for the grain's being taken away. The rioters encounter a patrician named Menenius Agrippa, as well as Gaius Martius himself. Menenius tries to calm the rioters, while Martius is openly contemptuous, and says that the plebeians were not worthy of the grain because of their lack of military service. Two of the tribunes of Rome, Brutus and Sicinius, privately denounce Martius. He leaves Rome after news arrives that a Volscian army is in the field.

The commander of the Volscian army, Tullus Aufidius, has fought Martius on several occasions and considers him a blood enemy. The Roman army is commanded by Cominius, with Martius as his deputy. While Cominius takes his soldiers to meet Aufidius' army, Martius leads a sally against the Volscian city of Corioles. The siege of Corioles is initially unsuccessful, but Martius is able to force open the gates of the city, and the Romans conquer it. Even though he is exhausted from the fighting, Martius marches quickly to join Cominius and fight the other Volscian force. Martius and Aufidius meet in single combat, which only ends when Aufidius' own soldiers drag him away from the battle.

In recognition of his great courage, Cominius gives Gaius Martius the cognomen of "Coriolanus". When they return to Rome, Coriolanus' mother Volumnia encourages her son to run for consul. Coriolanus is hesitant to do this, but he bows to his mother's wishes. He effortlessly wins the support of the Roman Senate, and seems at first to have won over the commoners as well. However, Brutus and Sicinius scheme to undo Coriolanus and whip up another riot in opposition to his becoming consul. Faced with this opposition, Coriolanus flies into a rage and rails against the concept of popular rule. He compares allowing plebeians to have power over the patricians to allowing "crows to peck the eagles". The two tribunes condemn Coriolanus as a traitor for his words, and order him to be banished.

After being exiled from Rome, Coriolanus seeks out Aufidius in the Volscian capital, and tells them that he will lead their army to victory against Rome. Aufidius and his superiors embrace Coriolanus, and allow him to lead a new assault on the city.

Rome, in its panic, tries desperately to persuade Coriolanus to halt his crusade for vengeance, but both Cominius and Menenius fail. Finally, Volumnia is sent to meet with her son, along with Coriolanus' wife and child, and another lady. Volumnia succeeds in dissuading her son from destroying Rome, and Coriolanus instead concludes a peace treaty between the Volscians and the Romans. When Coriolanus returns to the Volscian capital, conspirators, organised by Aufidius, kill him for his betrayal.

Going back, GB? May it bring you serious glances and critical respect. Shakespeare didn't frequent nightclubs, ya know.

ETA: A quiet word - Don't fly on planes with Fiennes during filming.

I'd pay to see Fiennes on a psychiatrist's couch. The personal stories would be sensational. That said, he's quite the respected craftsman with his art form, acting. Much in the way of subtle nuances may be learnt by the little Scottish lad quickly sliding into middle age.

Great to see another challenging, dramatic role appearing on the horizon for Senor Butler.

I just hope he got the role before he spoke about threesomes. Vanessa Redgrave may not approve.

Ralph Fiennes is directing and playing the lead role.

Ralph Fiennes to direct 'Coriolanus'


Vanessa Redgrave in talks to join project


By ALI JAAFAR

Ralph Fiennes is making his directorial debut with a feature adaptation of William Shakespeare's Roman tragedy "Coriolanus."
Fiennes, who stars in Stephen Daldry's "The Reader" alongside Oscar-nommed Kate Winslet, has already scouted for locations in East Europe and is currently in negotiations with financiers.
Shakespeare's play, set in the early years of the Roman Republic, is one of his most politically challenging examinations of the way power corrupts.
Fiennes will also play the title role of the proud but contemptuous soldier spurred on by his ambitious mother to run for the Roman Senate, which ultimately leads to his downfall.
Vanessa Redgrave is in talks to play the part of Coriolanus' mother Volumnia.

Well, didn't Ralph have sex with a flight attendant in the lavatories on an overseas flight in 2007 - resulting in her termination? I don't think Vanessa can say anything negative to her director about Gerry's sexcapades. hahahahaha!

I think Ralph and Gerry might have lots to bond over besides acting.....

Lord help Serbia (filming location in early 2010) and their native daughters.

Absolutely twue, Dallas. On a flight from Australia to India, Fiennes was accosted by a particularly frisky Qantas stewardess (Lisa Robertson) who subsequently lost her position and any respect that the 'mile high club' may have earned.

BTW she was once a call girl and undercover cop .... and Fiennes claimed she was the aggressor in the toilet. I wonder how much he can actually teach the youngun about good taste and discretion.

I find it funny that Overture PR asked him to change his sweater so that he wasn't showing as much chest. Wonder if it had anything to do with his MTV revelation that is buring up the net right now?

The past two weeks' worth of interviews have certainly shown me that Butler has the ability (and probable PR preparation) to present different personas to different audiences.

Some want nipple-baring sweaters and others want turtlenecks ....




Have I given you a lead-in, Dallas??? Turtlenecks

I know at least one person going head over heals ga-ga over Fiennes and Butler project.

I'm glad to know he's heading for real acting. Love Shakespeare anything.

I was making a joke.
I know the alternative meaning for turtleneck, which fits Butler.

I'm not sure what your word game is, as it appears to be the opposite on one who has a turtleneck.

Okay, back to bed. I woke up after 2 hours, and remembered something I needed to send on my laptop. Night night.

Me too, Alice! What few Shakespeare plays I know, I love. I just named my new dog Hamlet, for goodness sakes! I wasn't familiar with the story of Coriolanus though.

Exactly, Nay! I noticed how he tailors his stories and everything to be the person he needs to be for the type of audience he is in front of. The best example would be the differences between the Bonnie Hunt interview and the MTV one.

Nay, my understanding is that men from the UK are typically not circumcised (can I say that word in this thread?) unless they are Jewish or have some medical reason for it. Whereas, in the US at least (and I don't know about Australia), both Jews and Gentiles tend to be circumcised. As Butler is from the UK and not Jewish, we can only assume....

Pardon me if you already knew this about UK and US men. I wasn't sure if you were joking or asking for real. Smile

Emily, my game of hangman was a blatant (and unfulfilled) attempt to get Dallas say the word 'circumcision'. I've heard about the differences between the men from the U S of A and the old country from her. She is a wise and experienced ol' owl.

I know this topic is one that some people think they can answer from a three second Mrs Brown clip but hey, I have better things to do with my time ...
