Laurence Fishburne, Irene Jacob, Kenneth Branagh.
Oliver Parker has allowed Kenneth Branagh to shine in the 'puppet-master' role of Iago, the slighted lieutenant of Othello (Laurence Fishburne). Wreaking revenge, Iago ensnares the jealous Moor in his complicated web of deceit. This classic tale of love and the deadly power of jealousy "explodes into passion, violence and moving sorrow."
