Repertory Series ArchiveThe Bard Unbound: Shakespeare on Screen

Hamlet 2000

Buy Tickets



(2000) dir Michael Almereyda w/Ethan Hawke, Kyle MacLachlan, Diane Venora, Live Schreiber, Julia Stiles, Steve Zahn, Bill Murray, Sam Shepard [112 min; Digital]
Another modern adaptation of Shakespeare that retains the original language, Michael Almereyda’s visionary version re-imagines the melancholy Dane (Hawke) as the scion of a successful corporation rather than the heir to a kingdom.

“Almereyda modernises and streamlines without trivializing, and amplifies poetic melodrama with regular ingenuity and energy.” – Derek Adams, Time Out

“Icy-cold in its palette and unwaveringly cool in its application of modern settings and gizmos to a text that stands up to endless reinvention, this is a Hamlet that brings imagination matched by thoughtfulness to its appeal to both eye and ear.” – Susan Stark, Detroit News
