The second part of Henry IV follows the up-and-down fortunes of the roguish Sir John Falstaff (Simon Russell Beale) and those of his drinking buddy, the increasingly duty-bound Prince Hal (Tom Hiddleston). Mixing low comedy and piercing melancholy, Part 2 abounds in beautiful speeches and startling developments—the death of Hal’s father, more civil unrest, and the new monarch’s Oedipal rejection of Falstaff. For lovers of Shakespeare on film, Beale’s magnificent Falstaff—directed by five-time Olivier Award-winner Richard Eyre—is a thing of beauty. Beale balances the traditional bombast and slapstick of the grotesque Falstaff with an aching sense of mortality.
