Fraught with existential angst, Prince Hamlet (William Houston) contemplates vengeful murder after his father's ghost delivers dark accusations of being poisoned by his uncle Claudius (Gareth Thomas), who has since married Hamlet's mother (Jilly Bond) and assumed the king's throne. Something rotten in the state of Denmark proceeds to unfold in this modestly budgeted British filming of Shakespeare's popular tragedy. Lucy Cockram, Jason Harris co-star. 114 min. Standard; Soundtrack: English Dolby Digital stereo.
