"Prince Hal" has ascended to the throne of England. He proceeds to assert his hereditary claim to the throne of France, gathers an army and embarks on a course that will lead to one of England's greatest battlefield triumphs--the bloody Battle of Agincourt--and forever change the face of Europe. King Henry V unites his people, deals justly with traitors, leads his soldiers to victory, and in the end ensures the peace by marrying the French princess Katherine.

One of the best Shakespeare film adaptations! I normally don't go for "dark and gritty" as a style, since it tends to be done in the most ham-fisted manner more often than not, but this movie pulls it off, no small feat considering the dialogue is anything but realistic in style. Out of all of Branagh's Shakespeare movies, this one might be the best on a technical level (though I profess I love his Hamlet the most on a personal level).

A great adaptation of Shakespeare's play.
