Storyline

Although renowned as a fearless military leader, Caius Martius is unpopular among the plebeians, the common people of Rome, who resent his arrogance and equate him with the patrician elite whom they believe to be responsible for the current food shortage. Martius in turn despises the plebeians as cowardly, fickle and untrustworthy. For his extraordinary heroism in defeating the Volsces, enemies of Rome, and capturing the Volscian city of Corioles, Martius is honored with the name of Coriolanus; he is also prevailed upon by his friends, and by his strong-willed mother, to run for consul, Rome's highest public office. But the warrior is no politician - and he faces unaccustomed enemies in the form of two tribunes of the people, Sicinius Velutus and Junius Brutus, who fan the flames of populism against him, with catastrophic results.

This is NOT a movie, but a play on a stage that was filmed. the costumes are literally 21 century street clothes and the props non existent. badly cast and amateur acting to top it all off. this suuuucked.
