Oscar nominee Chalamet (“Call Me by Your Name”) plays boisterous Prince Hal, who reluctantly takes the throne in 1415 after the death of his tyrannical father (Ben Mendelsohn), to become King Henry V of England.

He must negotiate England’s complex politics in the midst of the Hundred Years’ War, while navigating his past and his relationship with his mentor and close friend, Sir John Falstaff (Joel Edgerton).


Sean Harris, Lily-Rose Depp, Robert Pattinson and Ben Mendelsohn also star in the production.

The 133-minute feature will have its world premiere on Sept. 2 at the Venice Film Festival. It was directed by David Michôd (“Animal Kingdom”, “The Rover”).

The movie will get a United States theatrical release on Oct. 11, followed by an international release on Netflix from Nov. 1. RGA/JB
