Hamlet starring Ian McKellen

Running time: 140 mins

Synopsis

A tale of revenge that has stood the test of time, Shakespeare's classic tragedy is reimagined for the modern day as a gripping psychological thriller! Transcending the confines of the stage in a uniquely modern take, the film utilises nearly every room of the Theatre Royal Windsor to transform it into the immortal Elsinore Castle, from basement dungeon to roof-top battlement.

Ian McKellen reprises his lead role as Hamlet, a man who descends into madness as he seeks vengeance against his uncle for the apparent murder of his father, leads a stellar cast including stage and screen legend Steven Berkoff, with further stars of the critically acclaimed, recent stage cast including Frances Barber (King Lear, Chekhov's The Seagull), Jonathan Hyde (King Lear, Titanic, Crimson Peak), Jenny Seagrove and BAFTA-winner Francesca Annis bringing their iconic roles to life in this compelling new film adaptation.

Followed by a recorded Q&A with Ian McKellen and Director Sean Mathias.
