Al Pacino spent years working on the film Looking for Richard. It is the attempt of this great actor to plumb the depths of Shakespeare's character Richard III along with other fine thespians such as Kevin Spacey. We will discuss the film but the primary emphasis will be on acting the most significant scenes in King Richard III. We will compare our insights with those of the players in the film. Required text: King Richard III by William Shakespeare, ed. James R. Siemon, ISBN-13: 978-1903436899.
