The King

The King ★★★★½

A riveting period piece detailing the early ascension of the throne by King Henry V. It's such a birlliant film.

Timothee Chalamet dominates the film with his powerful and domineering performance even though his appearance is a bit skinny.

The story is well-written. The characters are all developed. They contribute to the story.

The cinematography and set design are what makes this film settle. The amazing set pieces depicting very violent and brutal fights.

That ending too was amazing. A very smart subversion with a late twist that challenges every decision the story and its characters chose.

So, 4.5/5
