About This Clip


This 1982 BBC produced film Cymbeline was directed by Elijah Moshinsky and stars Richard Johnson as Cymbeline, Helen Mirren as his daughter Imogen, and Michael Pennington as her beloved Posthumus.

Cymbeline, the King of Britain, is angry that his daughter Imogen has chosen a poor (but worthy) man for her husband. So he banishes Posthumus, who goes to fight for Rome. Imogen (dressed as a boy) goes in search of her husband, who meanwhile has boasted to his pal Iachimo that Imogen would never betray him. And Iachimo’s determined to prove him wrong.
