The Hollow Crown: The Wars of the Roses – Henry VI, Part II

Air date: Sun., Dec. 18, 8:00 pm

 

The Hollow Crown: The Wars of the Roses is an epic saga told in three lavish film adaptations of Shakespeare’s history plays: Parts I and II of Henry VI and Richard III. Together, they span rebellion in France, the rise and fall of Joan of Arc, the terror of England’s Civil War and the deceitful dynastic murders culminating in the infamous reign of Richard III.

 

Bitter rivalries erupt. The feeble King Henry is overshadowed by Queen Margaret. Edward IV takes the throne, but youngest brother Richard has his eyes on the crown. Benedict Cumberbatch, Tom Sturridge, Sophie Okonedo and Keeley Hawes star.
