“Neil Oseman, the director of photography, clearly deserves much of the credit for the film’s success.” – The Guardian

A tale of revenge that has stood the test of time, Shakespeare’s classic tragedy is reimagined for the modern day as a gripping psychological thriller! Transcending the confines of the stage, the film utilises nearly every room of the Theatre Royal Windsor to transform it into the immortal Elsinore Castle, from basement dungeon to roof-top battlement. The critically acclaimed, recent stage cast of ‘Hamlet’, including Ian McKellen, Frances Barber (King Lear, Chekhov’s The Seagull) and Jonathan Hyde (King Lear, Titanic, Crimson Peak), bring their iconic roles to life in this compelling new film adaptation.
