Director Claire McCarthy was turned her hand to Shakespeare’s Hamlet, reinterpreting it for Ophelia. It stars Daisy Ridley in the lead role as a young girl who finds herself drawn to the “charismatic and elusive crown prince”, but their union gets derailed when his father is murdered, forcing Ophelia to decide between “her desires and her loyalty”.
Co-stars include Daisy Ridley, Naomi Watts, Clive Owen, George MacKay, and Tom Felton. The film premiered at Sundance to mixed reviews and a UK release is yet to be announced. Watch the trailer above.
