The tragedy of the Prince of Denmark is reimagined as a moody, taut thriller in this filmed stage production. Hamlet is a brooding, angry young man who has recently lost his father. Learning that his power-hungry uncle was the one who killed him, Hamlet rages against his family and his increasingly petrified girlfriend, Ophelia, in a tormented bid for justice and revenge. While the Shakespearian dialogue is true to the original text, the modern clothing allows for the tumultuous events of the play to be interpreted through contemporary contexts, especially when it comes to recent discussions around toxic masculinity. Filmed in front of a live audience at the Bristol Old Vic theatre, the recording brings the electric presence and urgency of the stage play to the big screen.
