It was called "Looking for Richard."  You can get some high-level
information by going here:  http://us.imdb.com/Title?0116913

I've seen it a few times on HBO and really enjoyed.  It would be nice if
the whole play would eventually be released in its entirety.

Comment:        Re: SHK 13.0127 Movie Question

The movie Marcia Eppich-Harris is looking for is "Looking for Richard".
It was Directed by and stars Al Pacino; Produced by Michael Hadge. It
includes contributions from and performances by Kevin Spacey, Winona
Ryder, Alec Baldwin, Aidan Quinn, Sir John Gielgud, Vanessa Redgrave,
Kenneth Branagh, Kevin Kline, Peter Brook, James Earl Jones and Estelle
Parsons. It was released in 1996 and has a running time of approx. 110
mins.

It's good stuff - a documentary exploring "Richard III", and the
production of Shakespeare generally, which includes generous chunks of
the play in performance and rehearsal. It is a kind of masterclass in
the play, I suppose, but mercifully free from academic intrusion. It is
a theatre- or film- person's Richard III. Sounds like a farrago on
paper, but it works really well, largely thanks to Pacino's own honesty
and openness, and especially thanks to the brilliance of Kevin Spacey,
who shines as both actor and reader of the play. There is one lovely
"scene", in which Pacino and Spacey are discussing the political
undertones of a certain exchange, away from the rest of the cast and
crew; Spacey makes an acute observation, placing the scene in question
into the wider context of the play's politics, and Pacino's eyes light
up - "You know," he tells his colleague, "you are one smart guy."
Priceless.
