Hamlet

HAMLET starring Ian McKellan
  • 2023
  • UK
  • 1h 26min
  • Directed by: Ken McMullen
  • Cast: Ian McKellen, Dominique Pinon, Gabriella Wright, John Shrapnel, Lex Shrapnel, Ben Turner

Two-time Academy Award nominee Ian McKellen stars in this thrilling and uniquely modern take on The Bard’s classic tragedy. 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 cinematic take, the film utilises nearly every room of the Theatre Royal Windsor to transform it into the immortal Elsinore Castle, from basement dungeon to rooftop battlement. Ian McKellen - reprising 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, Frances Barber, Jonathan Hyde and BAFTA winner Francesca Annis, bringing their iconic roles to life in this compelling new film adaptation.

The screening will be followed by a recorded Q&A with Ian McKellen and Sean Mathias.
