The King ★★★

Like most, the allure of watching Timothée Chalamet deliver another powerhouse performance was enough to make me click on this while scrolling through Netflix, and he, at least, didn’t disappoint. Rob Pattinson’s abysmal French accent on the other hand..... 

The first hour is an extreme slog of set up and character motivation, but by the second half when the action actually begins, I must admit I was pretty engaged. The cinematography during the Battle of Agincourt was particularly impressive, and I think made up for some of the slower paced scenes from earlier.
