The British Film Festival will continue with a screening of “Henry V” at 7 p.m. Thursday, Oct. 20, in Plaster Hall’s Cornell Auditorium.

Directed by and starring Kenneth Branagh, this 1989 film is one of the most stunning film adaptations of Shakespeare. Partly in response to Laurence Olivier’s classic version in the 1940s, Branagh plays down the more overtly patriotic dimensions of the play to focus on how war affects humans of all classes as he brings to life Shakespeare’s “warriors for the working day.”

The screening is free and open to the public.
