Al Pacino’s movie, Looking for Richard, makes Shakespeare relevant today. Language is a barrier for most people reading the play Richard III. However studying Shakespeare can unlock meaning behind superficial words. In this movie the audience begins to understand more by observing real moments and honest feelings. In Shakespeare’s play an example is made of the character Richard. Richard uses shallow words to manipulate for power but ultimately, isolated and lone, he dies with nothing. Al Pacino, like Shakespeare, educates his audience on the value of honest emotional connection and the effort of understanding others in Looking for Richard.
