Revengers tragedy: starring Christopher Eccleston, Eddie Izzard and Derek Jacobi
Synopsis : an adaptation of Thomas Middleton's celebrated play from 1607. Revengers Tragedy tells the story of a man whose wife is murdered on their wedding day, and his desire to exact revenge on the murderer.
In a post-apocalyptic Liverpool of the future, Vindici (Christopher Eccleston - Elizabeth, 28 days Later) returns from a self-imposed exile to bring down those responsible for his wife's murder. While Vindici's family have fallen on hard times, the murderer -known as the Duke (Derek Jacobi - Gosford Park) - has become rich, powerful and virtually untouchable. Employing all his wit and cunning, Vindici sets out to gain the Duke's confidence and get close enough to kill him.
Vibrant and pulsating with colour and style Revengers Tragedy is a masterpiece of reinvention set to astound and astonish. (Synopsis taken from the DVD front cover).
