King Lear, old and tired, divides his kingdom among his daughters, giving great importance to their protestations of love for him.

But Goneril and Regan have no love for him and instead plot to take all his power from him. In a parallel, Lear's loyal courtier Gloucester favors his illegitimate son Edmund after being told lies about his faithful son Edgar. Madness and tragedy befall both ill-starred fathers.King Lear featuring Michael Hordern and Brenda Blethyn is streaming on BritBox, streaming with subscription on Kanopy, and free on Sony Crackle.
