One Nation, One King (Un peuple et son roi)
- This event has passed.
In partnership with the French Embassy in Ireland.
From the celebrated director of received political drama The Minister (2011) comes this bold, ambitious epic addressing the divides and desperation that led to the French Revolution. Boasting a cast that includes some of the finest acting talent working in the country today (including Gaspard Ulliel, Adèle Haenel, Olivier Gourmet, Louis Garrel, Niels Schneider and Denis Lavant), One Nation, One King shifts between the heated debates in Louis XVI’s court and the increasing anger expressed by the proletariat who demand change, along with bread and democracy. There’s integrity about the grasp of history here and it’s handsomely presented with lavish period detail.
