Oscar-nominee Laurence Fishburne (The Matrix trilogy) and Kenneth Branagh (Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets) star in Shakespeare's thrilling tale about the doomed marriage between a Moorish general and the daughter of a Venetian noble (Irene Jacob, U.S. Marshals). Leonard Maltin praises Fishburne as "very good" in the title role, with Branagh "brilliant as the witty, scheming Iago" in this riveting, naturalistic version of the classic tragedy.
