NOW... takes us along with twenty British and American actors on a whirlwind ten month international tour of “Richard III,” starring Kevin Spacey in the title role, and directed by Oscar-winner Sam Mendes (American Beauty). The film follows Mendes’ Bridge Project—the first transatlantic theatre company—as the play takes shape and unfolds for us in a seamless tapestry between the backstage world to the on stage production, as it travels through nine cities. As we discover Spacey’s revelatory performance as the power-mad Richard destroying his family and everyone in his path, we also see how Sam and Kevin demonstrate the leadership required to unify and bring the best out of a group of different actors, with different techniques and experiences.
