Directed by Michael Almereyda | 2000

With Ethan Hawke, Kyle MacLachlan, Diane Venora, Sam Shepard, Bill Murray, Liev Schreiber, Julia Stiles

Dubbed “a new standard for adaptations of Shakespeare” by The New York Times, director Michael Almereyda’s vision of Hamlet transplants the Prince of Denmark to the streets of New York, turning a kingdom into a (literally) cutthroat corporation. Using the Bard’s original dialogue, this sleek modernization envisions Hamlet (Hawke) as an angst-ridden film student who attempts to use his art to make sense of his life.

Appropriate for grades 9—12.
