Ready for 'All the King's Men'
'All the King's Men' 개봉 박두
The first film of "All The King's Men" won the Best Picture
Academy Award in 1949. This new version is adapted from the
novel and directed by recent Oscar-winner Steven Zaillian.
He won a statuette for his 1993 Schindler's List screenplay.
And Zaillian insists the earlier All The King's Men was not an
influence on his film. It is populism that brings Willie Stark to
power; but once in office, he soon decides that to be effective,
he must do whatever it takes to exercise and increase that power.
All The King's Men also features Jude Law as journalist Jack Burden,
who sacrifices his principles to share in the power as a
top aid to the governor; Kate Winslet plays Anne, the tragic woman
who finds herself drawn to both men.
