Looking For Richard

Preview by Jack Foley

HOLLYWOOD icon Al Pacino (The Godfather) unravels the mysteries and challenges of portraying Shakespeare’s most intriguing villain, King Richard III, in the star-studded documentary Looking for Richard, which is set to arrive on DVD on October 7, 2016 courtesy of Odyssey Video.

Written, starring, directed and presented by Pacino, this labour of love features a jaw-dropping cast, including Kevin Spacey (American Beauty), Winona Ryder (Heathers), Alec Baldwin (30 Rock), Kenneth Branagh (Wallander), Derek Jacobi (Last Tango in Halifax), John Gielgud (Chariots of Fire), Vanessa Redgrave (Howards End) and James Earl Jones (Star Wars).

Scored by the award-winning composer Howard Shore (The Lord of the Rings), the movie combines performances of scenes from Richard III and interviews with leading Shakespeare scholars and actors on both Richard III and Shakespeare’s relevance to the modern world.

Pacino won a Directors Guild of America Award for Outstanding Directorial Achievement in Documentary for the film, which is a remarkable directorial debut.
