When You Rule With An Iron fist And A Heart Of Steel, You Pay With Your Flesh And Blood.

John Lear's Texas ranch isn't just big. It's several days' travel in any direction. But no one can hold onto anything forever, and aging Lear knows it's time to divvy up his spread to his three daughters. There's certainly enough land to make everyone happy. But for two siblings, enough isn't enough.

King Of Texas is Shakespeare-goes-West, a brawny Western based on the Bard's King Lear. Patrick Stewart portrays Lear, the cattle baron who loses his land and perhaps his sanity in his family's blood feud. Marcia Gay Harden, Lauren Holy and Julie Cox play Lear's offspring, joining a splendid cast that include Roy Scheider, Colm Meaney, Patrick Bergin and, as Lear's wily man Friday, David Alan Grier.
