Story

Screened as part of the 2018 Fugard Bioscope World Arts Cinema Season Part 2. From National Theatre Live.

Academy Award® nominee Benedict Cumberbatch (BBC’s Sherlock, The Imitation Game, Frankenstein at the National Theatre) takes on the title role of Hamlet in this screening of Shakespeare’s great tragedy.



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.
