ophelia (2018)

While Shakespeare’s “Hamlet” focused on the Danish Prince seeking revenge on those who murdered his father, this new retelling spotlights OPHELIA, the daughter of Claudius’ chief advisor who falls for Hamlet.

Daisy Ridley will play the title character with Naomi Watts starring opposite portraying Queen Gertrude. Clive Owen and Tom Felton also star.

Claire McCarthy is directing the project, which is was adapted from Lisa Klein’s YA novel by Semi Challas.
