A beautifully staged and intriguing retelling of “Hamlet” through the eyes of Ophelia, a young commoner in the court of the Queen of Denmark. Played by “Star Wars” heroine Daisy Ridley, she is a natural beauty, spirited and sagacious. She comes of age amid the palace intrigue and family betrayal played out by Hamlet’s mother Gertrude (Naomi Watts) and her late husband’s brother Claudius(a spirited Clive Owens). We revisit Shakespeare’s familiar drama and revel in his portrayal of first love. The art direction, cinematography and choice of music combine to create a lush and lovely film. Ophelia’s story told for the first time through female eyes by director Claire McCarthy results in a timely release.
