Ridley Scott (Gladiator, The Last Duel) is possibly the only person who could successfully bring this historical epic to the screen. Joaquin Phoenix (Walk The Line, Joker) assumes the role of French military commander Napoleon Bonaparte; a character as complex as he was famous.
The film focuses on his origins, the French Revolution and his swift, ruthless climb to Emperor; all viewed through the prism of his addictive, and often volatile, relationship with his wife and one true love, Josephine. Expect plenty of warfare, courting rituals, political intrigue and some glorious period costume, as this notorious and fascinating dictator gets a modern revaluation for modern times.
