The Dresser Directed by Richard Eyre
Based on the stage play by Ronald Harwood
Starring Anthony Hopkins, Ian McKellen, Emily Watson, Sarah Lancashire, Edward Fox, Vanessa Kirby, Tom Brooke Starz
Air Date: Monday, May 30th, 2016, 9:00pm
As the Nazis crash bombs down on England, an aging actor looks to enthrall audiences with an epic rendition of King Lear, one more time. The actor is unwell, having just checked himself out of a hospital, and it’s up to his dresser, Norman, to keep him upright and ready despite his wife’s objections and pleas to cancel the show. This is the plot description for The Dresser, based on Ronald Harwood’s play and the 1983 film of the same name, that garnered 5 Oscar nominations including Best Picture, Director, Actor (two), and Screenplay. The movie premieres tonight on Starz, a channel that is gaining a reputation for out of the box thinking. With several successful original series crossing many genres, Starz is building as a rival to pay-cable big boys HBO and Showtime. And in an era where every big movie at the theaters is a special effects comic book blockbuster, it’s refreshing to step back to a time where sets were built by human hands and not computer artists, and the stakes in a performance were truly high.
Starz has released a new trailer for The Dresser, a movie starring big time talent such as two time Academy Award nominee Ian McKellen, Academy Award Winner Anthony Hopkins, and two time Academy Award nominee Emily Watson.
The not your typical TV Movie first aired on BBC Two in October of last year, and debuts on Starz in May. It’s an adaptation of the play of the same name by Ronald Harwood, and tells the story of a theatrical performance of Shakespeare’s King Lear by a troupe of traveling actors during World War II in 1941 England while bombs drop around them, the highly unpredictable lead actor, and his longtime dresser who keeps everything in order.

Based on the tragic events of the 1996 Mount Everest disaster, Everest is the story of two expeditions to the summit of Earth’s highest mountain, one led by Scott Fischer (Jake Gyllenhaal) and the other by Rob Hall (Jason Clarke).
Directed by Baltasar KormÃ¡kur (2 Guns, Contraband), Everest is a film about surviving incalculable risks in the most inhospitable conditions on the planet.
As head of the New Zealand-based Adventure Consultants, Rob Hall leads an expedition of men and women to the summit of Everest, which is 29,029 feet above sea level. As the experienced mountaineer explains to his clients, “Human beings simply aren’t built to function at the cruising altitude of a 747. Our bodies will be literally dying. Everest is another beast altogether.”
