Ralph Fiennes on “Coriolanus”

Ralph Fiennes talks about directing and starring in the new film “Coriolanus,” based on the play by William Shakespeare. It tells the story of a Roman General who is at odds with the city of Rome and his fellow citizens. His controlling mother Volumnia (played by Vanessa Redgrave) pushes him to seek the position of Consul, but the public refuses to support him. Coriolanus’s anger prompts a riot, and he is expelled from Rome. He then allies himself with his sworn enemy Tullus Aufidius (played by Gerard Butler) to take his revenge on the city.
