Product Description

Originally produced by Joseph Papp for the New York Shakespeare Festival, this filmed adaptation features an exquisitely designed set, full of dark, cavernous and portentous halls and characters in elegant modern dress.

Kevin Kline's interpretation of Hamlet is an enjoyably accessible one; his melancholy parrying deftly with Hamlet's wit. Complimenting Kline's elegant portrayal of the doomed Prince of Denmark are the heartbreaking Diane Venora as Ophelia and the steely, insidious Claudius played by Bryan Murray, and veteran stage actress Dana Ivey as Gertrude.


'eloquent, moving and at times thrilling. The shrewdly edited version uses tight close-ups and captures small crowd scenes without a sense of confinement. The teleplay flows with commendable grace from beginning to end, all urged on by Kline's intelligent interpretation' --The New York Times
