Ralph Fiennes' directorial debut is an adaptation of Shakespeare's
tragedy about the tribulations of a banished hero. Transposing the
action from ancient Rome to present-day Eastern Europe, the film
tells the story of General Caius Martius Coriolanus (Fiennes) who
returns home from war to find himself at odds with his countrymen
who see him as a tyrant looking for fame and glory. When his
ambitious mother, Volumnia (Vanessa Redgrave), tries to orchestrate
formal recognition for her son, both the authorities and the people
turn against Coriolanus and exile him. Allying himself with his
former enemy, Aufidius (Gerald Butler), an embittered Coriolanus
sets out for revenge against those who have wronged him.
