In Coriolanus, a modernized adaptation of William Shakespeare's war-themed tragedy, Ralph Fiennes divides his time by working both in front of and behind the camera. The celebrated actor is not only the star of this dramatic production; it also marks his feature directorial debut.

In Canada to unveil the picture at the Toronto International Film Festival, Fiennes discusses his ease in tapping into anger as exiled leader Coriolanus, and also offers insight into his rival Aufidius, played by Gerard Butler.
