Your Weekend Netflix Flick – The King

Hal, wayward prince and reluctant heir to the English throne, has turned his back on royal life and is living among the people. But when his tyrannical father dies, Hal is crowned King Henry V and is forced to embrace the life he had previously tried to escape.

Now the young king must navigate the palace politics, chaos and war his father left behind, and the emotional strings of his past life — including his relationship with his closest friend and mentor, the ageing alcoholic knight, John Falstaff.

The King stars Timothée Chalamet, Joel Edgerton, Sean Harris, Lily-Rose Depp with The Batman and Ben Mendelsohn.

It is written by David Michôd and Joel Edgerton, and directed by David Michôd.

The King streams on Netflix from the 1st of November.
