Based on Academy Award-winning director Tony Richardson's (1963, Tom Jones) theatrical production at the Roundhouse Theatre in London, this film is a powerful adaptation of William Shakespeare's epic tragedy. Eschewing the big-budget production values of other film versions, it instead focuses on great performances from Nicol Williamson (Excalibur, The Reckoning) as Prince Hamlet, Academy Award-winner Anthony Hopkins (1991, Best Actor, The Silence of the Lambs) as the villainous Claudius and rock-and-roll singer Marianne Faithfull as Ophelia. The result is a Hamlet that is a compelling tribute to the Bard himself.
