Adapted from William Shakespeare’s epic tale of honor, ambition, betrayal, hubris, and the supernatural. Set against the backdrop of a post-apocalyptic world, the story follows the downfall of Rome’s most honored citizen, Marcus Brutus, as he conspires to assassinate Julius Caesar, in order to forestall tyranny and preserve democracy.
The film’s stellar cast includes Nathan Darrow (House of Cards), Peter McRobbie (Bridge of Spies), and Kathleen Chalfant (The Affair). The movie also features Pernell Walker (The Deuce), and Carra Patterson (Straight Outta Compton). Filmed entirely on location in a Brooklyn industrial warehouse with an abstract expressionistic production design, it’s Mad Max meets William Shakespeare meets Lars Von Trier.
