“Benedict Cumberbatch is a blazing five-star Hamlet.” – Daily Telegraph
“This is a Hamlet for a world on the edge: a warning from history, and a plea for new ideas from a new generation.” – Variety
As a country arms itself for war, a family tears itself apart. Forced to avenge his father’s death but paralysed by the task ahead, Hamlet rages against the impossibility of his predicament, threatening both his sanity and the security of the state. Academy Award® nominee Benedict Cumberbatch takes on the titular role of Hamlet in this must-watch Shakespeare classic, directed by Lyndsey Turner (Posh, Chimerica) and produced by Sonia Friedman Productions.
