If Ralph Fiennes does not win an Oscar for this film, I am done with the Oscars. This film had some of the best acting by a leading male that I have seen in years. Overall, the film is superb. Breathtaking even, at some points. The passion and ferocity of Coriolanus' character is portrayed ever so vividly by Fiennes that he literally had people in the theater, of all ages, on the edge of their seats- watching him in total awe.

If not for the performance of Ralph Fiennes alone, you must see this film. Also, the story is classic.
