The King stars Timothee Chalamet, Robert Pattinson, and Lily Rose Depp.
First we’d like to take a moment to applaud Robert Pattinson and his exorcism of Edward Cullen, through a series of diverse, complex, and interesting characters. Rather than falling bait to the blockbuster fever many actors who first attain super stardom in teen flicks, he has bidden his time, to instead select thoughtful and crafty roles.
The film, The King, is about Hal (Timothy Chalamet), the wayward prince and heir to the English throne, who is crowned King Henry V after his tyrannical father dies. Now the young king must navigate palace politics, the war his father left behind, and the emotional strings of his past life. The film debuts on Netflix this fall. We’re intrigued. Will you be watching?
