At the 76th Venice Film Festival the world premiere of David Michôd "The King" was nominated for an Oscar Timothée Chalamet is reportedly as King Henry V
Michôds "The King" premiered in Venice. On Monday morning, the two actors Chalamet and Robert Pattinson were praised by the first reactions continue to advance with almost every role. The film, an adaptation of Shakespeare's "Henry V", follows Hal (Chalamet), a prince who refuses to climb the English throne. After the death of his father, Hal is crowned King Henry V and has to rely on his close associates to navigate as king through the world of palace politics and the real world. Pattinson plays the Dauphin of France, whose character already recognizes the audience. The film also stars in Ben Mendelsohn, Lily-Rose Depp, Sean Harris, Joel Edgerton and Thomasin McKenzie.
Michôd directs the period drama with a script he co-wrote with Edgerton, who wrote and directed "Boy Erased" last year. Chalamet is the eponymous young king, who was nominated in 2017 for his role in Luca Guadagnino's "Call Me By Your Name". Chalamet plays in Greta Gerwig's upcoming adaptation of Little Women. "The role may or may not retain Chalamet's name in the price discussion as a Netflix trial, vying for Oscar recognition.
Pattinson's character is reportedly not displayed until after the first hour of the 133-minute film. Nevertheless, Michôd says that he has occupied the actor to give the story a bit of "dazzling". His dauphin, an impressive but charming opponent of Chalamet's ice-cold Hal, apparently steals the scene as he is introduced, surprising the audience with his accent and presence on the screen. Pattinson is revered by many as one of the greatest actors of his generation, with roles such as "Good Time" and "High Life." This feeling is likely to be maintained in "The King".
First reactions from Venice are tracked via Twitter, with attendees attentively taking note of the film's performances and some of them perceiving the feature as a standard play:

#TimotheeChalamet is SO good in #TheKing . His performance is surprisingly subtle for most of the film, but it remains magnetic throughout, giving even intensity to an intense finale. Timmy Stan will lose his mind. All greet the king! 🤴 pic.twitter.com/wsBLKVDLS6

# Venezia76 #TheKing All hail Michod, he knew what he was doing here. Chalamet starts off nicely like Kirsten Dunst in Marie Antoinette, then he brings dubious sharpness into the role, without losing this living seduction by aliens. Pattinson with his French debauchery is funny.

Well, I had little to no expectations of #TheKing because period / war is not my genre but has surprised me a lot @RealChalamet did an incredible job. A few moments off the accent, but otherwise a truly powerful performance, one of his best.

The king was good. Timothy Chalamet remains exactly the right side of Joffrey and is actually a pretty convincing and hot knight. Robert Pattinson laughed as a scary French prince. Pretty conventional, but the fans will love it, I'm sure. # venezia76 pic.twitter.com/vZqdTUm7vj
