“A blazing, five-star Hamlet.” — Dominic Cavendish, Daily Telegraph

“One of the most visually and atmospherically stunning productions I’ve ever seen, of anything, ever.” — Andrzej Lukowski, Time Out London

Academy Award® nominee Benedict Cumberbatch (BBC’s "Sherlock," THE IMITATION GAME) takes on the title role of Shakespeare’s great tragedy, directed by Lyndsey Turner ("Posh," "Chimerica"). As a country arms itself for war, a family tears itself apart. Forced to avenge his father’s death but paralyzed by the task ahead, Hamlet rages against the impossibility of his predicament, threatening both his sanity and the security of the state. DCP digital.
