Watched The King (2019)

It’s a brooding film, with a suitably pensive Timothée Chalamet. He brings a certain youthful intensity. His boyish look and slight frame feel at odds with the stature of the role, and with the many other actors who have played Henry V. It creates an interesting power dynamic. How he survived the Battle of Agincourt is beyond me. Perhaps if William Shakespeare was around now and writing screenplays this is what he would’ve written. The themes are there but it’s handled with more subtlety.
