David Tennant and Patrick Stewart in this critically acclaimed production of Shakespeare's masterpiece from Britain's renowned Royal Shakespeare Company.
No recent stage production in Britain has attracted the excitement and nearly unanimous critical praise as this Hamlet. Tennant's interpretation was recognized as defining role for a generation, and Stewart's complex Claudius won the Oliver Award, Britain's highest stage honor. In this specially-shot screen version, filmed on location rather than in the theater, Tennant and Stewart reprise their roles. Dynamic, exciting and contemporary, this remarkable production breathes new life into Shakespeare's greatest play.
