Ciné Sunday: Napoleon

Ridley Scott

Legendary director Ridley Scott has left his mark on cinema time and again across his long career, from Alien and Blade Runner to Thelma and Louise and Gladiator. Now 85, he shows no sign of slowing down with his latest film (and a Gladiator sequel on the horizon).

"a spectacle-filled action epic"

Napoleon is a spectacle-filled action epic that details the rise and fall of French Emperor Napoleon Bonaparte, played by Oscar-winner Joaquin Phoenix. The film captures Bonaparte's relentless journey to power through the prism of his addictive, volatile relationship with his one true love, Josephine, (The Crown’s Vanessa Kirby) showcasing his visionary military and political tactics against some jaw-dropping visuals and incredible and dynamic practical battle sequences.
