In the early 1400s, the Prince of Wales (Timothée Chalamet) is reluctantly drawn into England’s battlefields; after taking the throne, he’s persuaded of the need for war with France. A portrait of Henry V that is inspired by (and borrows parts from) Shakespeare’s ”Henriad”, the plays he wrote about the king and his father, Henry IV. The young, deceptively frail-looking Henry, played with a heavy chip on his shoulder by Chalamet, is given a somber, slow-moving treatment, but it is still worthwhile, with a surprisingly amusing Robert Pattinson as the ridiculous Dauphin.
