HAMLET, a contemporary adaptation of the classic play, is set in New York City, circa 2000 - a world of laptops and limousines.
“The Bard has come to the corporate board in Miramax’s pulsating rich HAMLET, a supple and contemporary turn on Shakespeare’s classic. A resounding hit in its premiere screening at the Sundance Film Festival, it’s a bracing and ear-opening adaptation featuring a passionate, robustly conflicted lead performance by Ethan Hawke. For those who have only seen HAMLET with the often sterile reaches of the proscenium arch, this vivid visual interpretation rejuvenates the play with accessible bright flourishes.
The film’s noble textures are further trumpeted by Carter Burwell’s stirringly quiet and sometimes thunderous musical score.” - The Hollywood Reporter
