No recent stage production in Britain has attracted the excitement and nearly unanimous critical praise as this Hamlet. Tennant?s interpretation was recognized as defining the role for a generation, and Stewart?s complex Claudius won the Olivier award, Britain?s highest stage honor. In this specially-shot screen version, filmed on location rather than in the theater, Tennant and Stewart reprise their roles. Dynamic, exciting and contemporary, it breathes new life into Shakespeare?s greatest play.
