The Merchant of Venice
Summary: A pound of flesh is at stake if a loan is not repaid in this adaptation of the classic Shakespearean play starring Al Pacino as the infamous moneylender. Poor Venetian Bassanio loves Portia, but lacks the funds necessary to win her heart. Fortunately, merchant Antonio offers to give his friend the money by borrowing it from his nemesis Shylock (Pacino), a local Jewish lender. But in lieu of interest, Shylock adds a morbid condition if the loan is not repaid-a pound of flesh! With Jeremy Irons, Joseph Fiennes, Lynn Collins, Zuleikha Robinson, Kris Marshall, Charlie Cox, Heather Goldenhersh and Mackenzie Crook. Written and directed by Michael Radford, based on the play by William Shakespeare. (R) (MV,N)
