Timothée Chalamet is King Henry V in this medieval drama based on several Shakespeare plays, adapted for the screen by David Michôd and Joel Edgerton (who co-stars as John Falstaff).
"Hal (Chalamet), wayward prince and reluctant heir to the English throne, has turned his back on royal life and is living among the people. But when his tyrannical father (Ben Mendelsohn) dies, Hal is crowned King Henry V and is forced to embrace the life he had previously tried to escape. Now the young king must navigate the palace politics, chaos and war his father left behind, and the emotional strings of his past life—including his relationship with his closest friend and mentor, the ageing alcoholic knight, John Falstaff."
