After the murder of her lover Caesar, Egypt's queen Cleopatra needs a new ally. She seduces his probable successor Marc Antony. This develops into real love and slowly leads to a war with the other possible successor - Octavius.
Oh wow. I had to watch this in my Theatre arts class because we were studying Shakespeare. Not only was it extremely difficult to follow, it contained a lot of violence and overall was a snoozer--I found myself sleeping through most of it. First thing that flew out of my mouth when it was over was "What the heck was he smoking when he wrote that?" No one sane would be capable of writing something this horrible. It's hard enough with the language to be able to follow it, on top of the plot that is just all over the place.
I would not recommend this if you have youngsters or have trouble following plots and/or Shakespeare language.
