Mov-ember (finally!) concludes on a high note! Doc and Nina discuss the 2019 Netflix original, The King, starring Timothee Chalamet. This is an adaptation of Shakespeare’s “Henry V,” so brush up on your Henriad before listening!

Doc and Nina will discuss the historical context of Henry V (or Hal, as he’s called in the film), his shaky Salic claim to both the English and French thrones, war (what IS it good for anyway?), and the movie’s decision to leave out the St. Crispian’s Day speech. Doc will also talk about the gross reason why Henry V is always painted in profile and Nina admires Fallstaff’s dancing dad bod.


Show Notes
