Shakespeare is relocated to 21st century Manhattan - but the play keeps its original dialogue, or at least enough of it to fit a film that's a fraction of the length of many stage productions. In this adaptation, Hamlet is not the heir to the Kingdom of Denmark, but the New York-based Denmark Corporation. Visually, Hamlet's world here is sleek and high-tech, with much use of security camera shots to stress how easily Shakespeare makes sense in this 21st setting. A great cast includes Bill Murray and Ethan Hawke as Hamlet himself.
