Legendary director Ridley Scott conquers another spectacle-filled historical epic with NAPOLEON which details the checkered rise and fall of the iconic French Emperor Napoleon Bonaparte, played by Oscar-winner Joaquin Phoenix alongside Oscar nominee Vanessa Kirby as the love of his life, Josephine.
Against a stunning backdrop of large-scale filmmaking orchestrated by Ridley Scott, the film captures Bonaparte's relentless journey to power through the prism of his addictive, volatile relationship with his one true love, Josephine, showcasing his visionary military and political tactics against some of the most dynamic practical battle sequences ever filmed.
Joaquin Phoenix performs a glorious triumph as the notorious emperor who both had a brilliant strategic mind and was epically insecure at the same time. The incredibly precise and masterfully acted biopic is the very definition of a must-see film.
"Joaquin Phoenix makes a magnificent emperor in thrilling biopic."
- The Guardian
"Here is a sweeping historical tapestry -- no one does it better today than Scott -- with a damning, almost satirical portrait at its center. That mix makes Napoleon a rivetingly off-kilter experience."
- Associated Press
"A lavish, thoughtful drama that remains entranced and bemused by France’s most notorious emperor."
- Screen International
"All hail Joaquin Phoenix’s captivating emperor."
- The Times (UK)
"An awe-inspiring achievement."
