The General from America

He was a friend of George Washington and a decorated hero of the Revolutionary War. What caused Benedict Arnold to renounce his country and become one of America’s most reviled figures? Richard Dreyfuss stars in Richard Nelson’s dramatic and surprisingly modern take on the man whose name is now a synonym for being a traitor.
