`The Hollow Crown: The Wars of the Roses' is the second set of adaptations of Shakespeare's history plays in the `Hollow Crown' cycle, comprising `Henry VI' parts one and two, and `Richard III'. An all-star cast features Hugh Bonneville as Humphrey, Duke of Gloucester, Sally Hawkins as his wife Eleanor, Benedict Cumberbatch as Richard III, and Judi Dench as Cecily, Duchess of York. Turmoil follows Henry V's death at a time when wars are breaking out in France. With King Henry VI still at a young and tender age, the responsibility to guide the court befalls the quarrelling English noblemen.
Starring Jeremy Irons, Benedict Cumberbatch, Tom Sturridge
