Summary Based on Academy Award-winning director Tony Richardson's theatrical production at the Roundhouse Theatre in London, 'Hamlet' is a powerful adaptation of William Shakespeare's epic tragedy. Eschewing the big-budget production values of other film versions, it instead focuses on great performances from Nicol Williamson as Prince Hamlet, Academy Award-winner Anthony Hopkins as the villainous Claudius and rock-and-roll singer Marianne Faithfull as Ophelia.
