I want to see this just for the haircuts.

This is Henry V, right? Is it following true history or the Shakespeare play like Laurence Olivier's?

The trailer gave me Fassbender Macbeth vibes.

It is Henry V but the fictional John Falstaff is in it. However he also appears to be advising Henry after his ascension so it's not quite an adaptation into plain English either. It is conflating the Henry IV and Henry V plays though since both Henry IV and the Dauphin are characters

This was pretty good. It is your basic bread and butter historical drama, but it has flourishes of technical brilliance, and it further proves how Timothée Chalamet is destined to be one of the best actors of his generation.
