Kenneth Branagh leads an all-star cast in this full-length production of William Shakespeare's greatest tragedy, the story of Danish prince Hamlet. Hamlet (Branagh--Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets, Rabbit-Proof Fence) returns home to learn that his father, the King, has recently died and his mother, Gertrude (Academy Award winner Julie Christie--Dr. Zhivago, Finding Neverland), has already married his uncle, Claudius (Derek Jacobi--Gosford Park, "Breaking the Code"). Suffering from shock and grief, the young prince is visited by the ghost of his father (Brian Blessed--Macbeth, Henry V), who claims that he was murdered by Claudius and who demands vengeance. Now, Hamlet must decide whether this tale told by an apparition is true--and whether he should exact the vengeance his father demands.
