‘The King’ at the Venice Film Festival

‘The King’ premiered yesterday at the Venice Film Festival. You can see images from the premiere and photocall in the gallery and the press conference video below. Some reviews have also surfaced from Variety, Vanity Fair and many others.

Handsome is the wrong word for this actor. He’s beautiful, and the camera drinks him in. “The King” gives Chalamet one of the choicest roles he’s had, but when you take an actor who looks like this and cast him as a young king, it’s not just about how fascinating the role is — the film is capturing the elevation of his stardom. And Timothée Chalemet, I predict, could be the biggest movie star of his generation. As he demonstrates in “The King,” he’s got it — not just the talent (though he’s a superb actor), but the ability to fix an audience with his stare, so that even when he’s doing nothing much at all, what he’s looking at or thinking about becomes the story the movie is telling.

I think what works about the performance, really, is the earnestness. Chalamet is eager to do a good job, just as Henry is when he finally decides to shape up and reign over the land blessed by St. George.

Timothée to star in ‘The King’ + DVD news

Accoring to Deadline, Timothée is set to star in Netflix’ ‘The King’ as young Henry V.

Chalamet will star as the title character in The King, a Plan B-produced drama helmed by David Michôd. Production will start in June. Joel Edgerton and Michôd wrote the script.

Chalamet will play the young Henry V. After his brother is killed in battle before his coronation, a young king is coronated in the late 1300s. The reluctant ruler wears the crown at a time when England was near a war with France, and the empire is teetering. He rises to the occasion, admirably.

In other news, ‘Call Me By Your Name’ will be released on DVD/Blu-Ray on March 13 and ‘Lady Bird’ on March 6, with the digital release on February 13.
