Something is rotten in medieval-era Denmark, where political intrigue swirls around the imperial court like dark magic. Amid it all, the queen’s brightest lady-in-waiting, Ophelia, finds herself drawn to Hamlet, the charismatic and elusive crown prince. As their secretive love affair takes flight, betrayal strikes the court, threatening to derail their union and devastate the royal family for good. Caught between her desires and her loyalty, Ophelia has to decide where her devotion will ultimately lie.

This remarkable retelling of Shakespeare’s Hamlet promises to charm fans of the seminal work and newcomers alike, as it manages to imbue a fresh and empowering female perspective into one of the most renowned and celebrated stories of all time. Director Claire McCarthy has crafted an intricate and dazzling historical world that exudes romance, deception, and exhilaration. Featuring a stellar cast including Daisy Ridley, Naomi Watts, Clive Owen, George MacKay, and Tom Felton, Ophelia plucks its titular character from literary slumber and firmly places her center stage, where she belongs.
