With cable, Netflix, and internet options, finding the best thing to watch during your downtime is difficult. Instead of flipping through menus all weekend and settling on nothing, turn to What to Watch This Weekend, a series in which we give you our pick for the best new show or movie available.
We’ve got an interesting for you this week, as Anthony Hopkins leads in King Lear, a modern-day retelling of the Shakespeare classic. But when we say “modern-day,” we’re not saying Lear works at a startup in San Francisco. Rather, this version is set in an alternate universe, one where present-day London, a highly militarized zone, takes center stage. Yeah, we know it’s confusing. Still, early reviews are pretty solid and you know the story is a winner. Check it out on Amazon this weekend.
