The actor at 50 and the actor at 80 inhabit entirely different ends of the spectrum when they play a role as storied as Shakespeare's King Lear. Actor-composer Anthony Hopkins returns to the role for which he notoriously claimed not to be ready at 50, and you'll experience all of his mellifluous misgivings after a screening of the Amazon Prime Video version of King Lear. Hopkins will discuss this latest Lear, who rules a future British military junta and tries to figure out which of his three daughters will grab the lion's share of his posh dystopia after he's gone.
