'Coriolanus' gives us the Bard in our time

Ralph Fiennes stars in and directs Coriolanus, adapted from one of Shakespeare's lesser-known tragedies. It's set in modern times in a war-torn Balkans-like country, with partisan blood feuds, conflict and famine. The language remains Shakespeare's, but it's accessible to today's audiences.
