The LAST LEAR (2007)

An ambitious young film director coaxes, Harry, an ageing thespian devoted to Shakespeare, out of retirement to play in his new film. Creating a film-within-a film, trust and treachery collide as the director drags great performances from his three main characters but at a personal cost.
