Julius Caesar (2012) Poster

The growing ambition of Julius Caesar is a source of major concern to his close friend Brutus. Cassius persuades him to participate in his plot to assassinate Caesar but they have both sorely underestimated Mark Antony.

I don't understand the hostility
I watched this mostly because I enjoy watching historical movies and on occasion a well produced Shakespeare play. When I read one of the reviews I felt compelled to watch it for myself and discover why this take on Julius Ceasar would raise such wrath.

It was an entertaining play performed by African actors whom I believe that William Shakespeare himself would have been pleased to watch. In theatre actors and playwrights have a degree of artistic liberty to give the play a personal touch. I remember watching Ralph Fiennes play Coriolanus in a modern day Rome, the magnificent and talented Ian McKellen play Richard III in an alternate Fascist England, or another great actor Anthony Hopkins who played Titus. Orson Wells is said to have done a Fascist version of Julius Ceaser in the 1930's, and who doesn't remember Leonard DiCaprio in modern-day Romeo and Juliet.

This version of Julius Ceaser has a rich and beautiful African resonance to it and I love it. What makes Shakespeare so great is you can take any one of his plays and place it in any era or culture and it will always long familiar. Shakespeare understood people and bravo to the actors who played this version so well.
