In collaboration with British Council Italy
Hamlet by Margaret Williams brings to the big screen the acclaimed 2014 play by Sarah Frankcom, that sold out at the Royal Exchange Theatre in Manchester, with the amazing Maxine Peak in the role of Hamlet, and Polonius, who becomes Polonia (Gillia Bevan).
An overwhelming and immersive film that, thanks to the eight cameras used in filming, gives us all the intensity and power of the settings with which Sarah Frankcom reshuffled the cards on the table (together with gender identity) of this Shakespearean masterpiece, bewitching both audience and critics alike. A milestone, “the theatrical equivalent of the Sex Pistols playing the Free Trade Hall” (Mike McCahill, moviemail.com).
