Dir: Sean Mathias
Cast: Ian McKellen, Steven Berkoff, Frances Barber
117mins   2023   UK   12A   English   

Two-time Academy Award nominee and Shakespearian titan, Ian McKellen, stars in this thrilling and uniquely modern take on The Bard's classic tragedy – heading to UK cinemas for one night only!

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 in a uniquely modern take, 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.

Ian McKellen, reprising his lead role as Hamlet, a man who descends into madness as he seeks vengeance against his uncle for the apparent murder of his father, leads a stellar cast including stage and screen legend Steven Berkoff, with further stars of the critically acclaimed, recent stage cast of 'Hamlet', including Frances Barber, Jonathan Hyde, Jenny Seagrove and BAFTA-winner Francesca Annis bringing their iconic roles to life in this compelling new film adaptation.
