In The Dresser, Anthony Hopkins stars as a Shakespearean actor named Sir whose life is falling apart. Ian McKellen portrays his dresser, Norman, trying to help pull Sir--who was hospitalized earlier in the day--together so that he can perform on stage that night in yet another production of King Lear. The story is set in a challenging, harrowing time as WWII rages with Nazi Germany regularly bombing Britain. Yet the theater--even one as dreary as this one in a decrepit UK village--draws a packed house despite the threat of an air raid, underscoring the importance of art and the courage of the audience. The Dresser’s supporting cast includes Emily Watson, Sarah Lancashire and Edward Fox.


Richard Eyre, director; Ben Smithard, BSC, DP.
