Coriolanus: The Shooting Script
Coriolanus
The Shooting Script
Paperback      ISBN: 006220257x
A feared and revered military commander courts tragedy when he enters the political arena in Coriolanus, a driving action/drama that marks the directorial debut of the film's star, two-time Academy Award®-nominee Ralph Fiennes. Working from an adapted screenplay by award-winning writer John Logan, Fiennes takes a bracingly modern and naturalistic approach to Shakespeare, delivering a story that speaks strongly to our own polarized, volatile times. Updating William Shakespeare's late-period tragedy of ancient Roman setting to the 21st-century of guerrilla insurgencies, instant polling, and 24-hour news networks, Fiennes delivers a trenchant tale of honor, power, politics, and pride. Joining Fiennes onscreen is an exciting, impressive, and international cast that includes Gerard Butler, Brian Cox, Oscar® winner Vanessa Redgrave, Jessica Chastain, John Kani, James Nesbitt, Paul Jesson, Lubna Azabal, and Ashraf Barhom.

The Counselor
A Screenplay
Paperback      ISBN: 0345803590
On the eve of becoming a married man, the Counselor makes a risky entrée into the drug trade—and gambles that the consequences won’t catch up to him. Along the gritty terrain of the Texas–Mexico border, a respected and recently engaged lawyer throws his stakes into a cocaine trade worth millions. His hope is that it will be a one-time deal and that, afterward, he can settle into life with his beloved fiancée. But instead, the Counselor finds himself mired in a brutal and dangerous game—one that threatens to destroy everything and everyone he loves. Deft, shocking, and unforgettable, McCarthy is at his finest in this gripping tale about risk, consequence, and the treacherous balance between the two.
