“we few, we happy few, we band of brothers”
Shakespeare’s rousing history crowns both young King Henry V as a warrior Legend and his rationale for waging war as a haunting moral ambiguity. In his youth, young Hal spent his days in a band of pick-pockets led by the derelict fat knight Falstaff. But having successfully defended his father-King in their country’s civil war, now King Henry decides France is his to take. He conquers superior numbers abroad with soaring orations and wins a princess without a tongue for French.
