Shakespeare has been no stranger to big screen adaptations, but few has been as forward-thinking or creative as Ralph Fiennes‘ “Coriolanus.” Not only did the actor/director choose a lesser-known play to tackle, but he gave it a contemporary setting and rounded up a strong cast — Gerard Butler, Vanessa Redgrave, Jessica Chastain, James Nesbitt — to tell the tale. With a script by John Logan, “Coriolanus” was certainly one of the more unique pictures to hit the big screen last year, and in case you didn’t catch it then, we’ve got 3 copies on the film on DVD for some lucky readers.
In order to win, email us the name of three Shakespearean play movie adaptations that changed or updated the setting and who directed each of them. Good luck!
Update: Contest is closed, winners will be contacted via email. “Coriolanus” is on DVD and Blu-ray today. Contest open to U.S. residents only.
