The first teaser of Timothée Chalamet starrer The King is out and it looks promising. The two-minute clip gives us a glimpse of the kind of period drama that awaits the audience – exciting and most likely surprising. The Netflix film also features Sean Harris, Ben Mendelsohn, Lily-Rose Depp and Joel Edgerton.
Check out the official synopsis from Netflix below:
“Hal (Timothée Chalamet), wayward prince and reluctant heir to the English throne, has turned his back on royal life and is living among the people. But when his tyrannical father dies, Hal is crowned King Henry V and is forced to embrace the life he had previously tried to escape. Now the young king must navigate the palace politics, chaos and war his father left behind, and the emotional strings of his past life — including his relationship with his closest friend and mentor, the ageing alcoholic knight, John Falstaff (Joel Edgerton).”
Timothee Chalamet, who has previously proved his acting chops in movies like Call Me By Your Name and Lady Bird, at first look, doesn’t really look the part. However, as the clip progresses, the young star shows that he has what it takes to tackle the multi-layered character.
