Director Gregory Doran's modern-dress Hamlet for the Royal Shakespeare Company features David Tennant's thrilling, mercurial and often very funny central performance.
This visually sumptuous screen version, filmed on location with the original stage cast, captures the atmosphere and excitement of the critically acclaimed production. Patrick Stewart won an Olivier Award for his performance as Claudius, King of Denmark. Penny Downie plays Hamlet's mother Gertrude and Mariah Gale is the tragic Ophelia. Edward Bennett is Ophelia's avenging brother Laetes and Oliver Ford Davies takes the role of their father Polonius.
