Plot of Napoleon

Napoleon follows the rise and fall of Napoleon Bonaparte, who came from nothing and achieved a great deal. The film chronicles the political and personal life of the eponymous French General, later Emperor, who led France to glory until his last battle, the Battle of Waterloo. The film’s trailer also equally showcases the lover as well as the tyrant Napoleon was in his life.

From passionately wooing and marrying the sensual widow Joséphine to making love under the table, Napoleon had a lust for the extreme, both in battle and pleasure. On the battlefield, Napoleon was a genius and he did not hesitate to let enemies see him. In fact, he hopes for it, so that they may fall into his trap and succumb to icy deaths by drowning. The film is not fully accurate, but its sensational and performative merit makes up for it.

Cast of Napoleon

Napoleon stars a highly talented cast of Joaquin Phoenix as Napoleon Bonaparte, Vanessa Kirby as his wife, Joséphine, Matthew Needham as his brother Lucien Bonaparte, Sinéad Cusack as his mother Letizia Bonaparte, Paul Rhys as Talleyrand, Catherine Walker as Marie-Antoinette, Queen of France, Rupert Everett as Arthur Wellesley, and Ben Miles as Armand de Caulaincourt, among many others.
