Description

The Sedona International Film Festival is proud to present the encore of Kenneth Branagh Theatre Company Live’s  “The Winter’s Tale” — starring Academy Award-winner Judi Dench and Kenneth Branagh — from London’s Garrick Theatre. The play returns to the big screen at the Mary D. Fisher Theatre Dec. 27-Jan. 2.


Due to phenomenal demand, “The Winter’s Tale” — Shakespeare's timeless tragicomedy of obsession and redemption — returns to cinemas this festive season. This beautifully reimagined production, co-directed by Rob Ashford and Kenneth Branagh, features a remarkable cast including Dame Judi Dench as Paulina, alongside Tom Bateman, Jessie Buckley, Hadley Fraser, Miranda Raison and Sir Kenneth Branagh as Leontes.


King Leontes appears to have everything: power, wealth, a loving family and friends. But sexual jealousy sets in motion a chain of events with tragic consequences…


This critically acclaimed production was the first in the hugely successful Kenneth Branagh Theatre Company Live season that was broadcast to cinemas from London’s Garrick Theatre over the course of a year in 2015.


" ‘The Winter’s Tale’ is possibly Shakespeare’s most perfect play ... and this production, co-directed by Branagh and Rob Ashford, is magical. It is hard to imagine the play more movingly performed. It’s a gift to eye and heart." — Observer.


“Radiant Dame Judi Dench is majestically authoritative.” — Evening Standard


“The best of British high culture.” — Daily Mail


“You won’t see a better version.” — WhatsOnStage
