France/Japan | 162 min | R | DCP | Akira Kurosawa

Akira Kurosawa’s Academy Award-winning adaptation of William Shakespeare’s King Lear, Ran considers the disastrous consequences of Lord Hidetora Ichimonji’s (Tatsuya Nakadai) decision to split his kingdom among his three sons.

"The re-release of Akira Kurosawa’s 1985 epic Ran (the word means “chaos”) is an opportunity to see this stunning free transformation of King Lear, one of the great screen adaptations of Shakespeare." -Peter Bradshaw (The Guardian)
