Do not miss this occasion to make your students practice their French while (re)discovering Racine’s britannicus played by the actors of the renowned Académie de la Comédie-Française on the big screen.

Synopsis:
Thanks to the manipulations of his mother Agrippina, Nero now rules over Rome. Yet it is his half-brother Britannicus, rightful heir to the late Emperor, who should have inherited the throne. Viewing him as a threat, Nero has Britannicus’ fiancée Junie kidnapped and gradually transforms into a tyrant.
