Othello (2001)


Drama, Made for TV


Obsession, jealousy, betrayal. A powerful black man in a white society. Acclaimed screenwriter Andrew Davies takes these themes from Shakespeare and reworks them into an achingly intense contemporary story set in present-day London. As racial tensions threaten to explode, political forces propel John Othello (Walker) into a high-profile public role over the head of his best friend and mentor Ben Jago (Eccleston).
