Othello (1995)

Shakespeare’s gripping story of the tragic union of a Moorish commander and a Venetian noblewoman stars Oscar® nominee Laurence Fishburne and Kenneth Branagh.

 

The 1995 drama picture Othello is based on the same-titled tragedy by William Shakespeare. Laurence Fishburne plays Othello, Irène Jacob plays Desdemona, and Kenneth Branagh plays Iago in this Oliver Parker-directed film. Although low-budget indie plays featuring Ted Lange and Yaphet Kotto were published before it, this is the first major studio production of the play that portrays an African American actor as Othello.
