Al Pacino, Jeremy Irons, Joseph Fiennes and Lynn Collins co-star in this cinematic adaptation of William Shakespeare's famous drama. Antonio (Irons) agrees to go into debt so that his friend Bassanio (Fiennes) can have money to impress Portia (Collins). The lender, Shylock (Pacino), demands that if the debt is not repaid, a pound of Antonio's flesh will be due. [fandango.com]
"Shylock is an intense, passionate character in a great play, and Radford's film does them justice."
