HENRY V - Adaptions - Kenneth Branagh's

This is a continuing look at Henry V from my introduction.

There have been several films made of Henry V, two most notable are—the 1944 version with Sir Lawrence Olivier (Sir because he was knighted) and the 1989 version directed by and starring Kenneth Branagh.

I've posted a clip here from Branagh's film, Henry V. I would highly recommend seeing the entire film to better understand the context and get the full effect of the emotional plea by the King to rally the troops.
