This September, the British Embassy launched its seven month-long campaign "This is GREAT Britain" that aims to show the very best of Britain's culture. The celebration commenced with the presentation of the National Theater Live’s stage play "Coriolanus" starring Tom Hiddleston. Filmed in HD, the play was screened last September 3 at Ayala Malls' Greenbelt 3 Cinemas with a program at Greenbelt 5 Fashion Walk preceding the screening. "Coriolanus" also ran for two days (September 5 and 6) at Greenbelt 3 cinemas that was made available for the moviegoing public.
Hiddleston, best known globally for his role as Loki in "Thor" series, plays the titular role in "Coriolanus" that was written by William Shakespeare. The story centers on a conflicted man named Coriolanus - hero and defender of Rome. When an old adversary threatens Rome, the city called on to Coriolanus to defend their country. Famine threats the city, the citizens' hunger swells into an appetite for change and on returning from the war, Coriolanus must confront the march of real politics and the voice of an angry mob threatening to throw him out of his hometown.
