Ophelia trailer: Daisy Ridley and Naomi Watts star in a new take on Hamlet
There have been countless versions of Hamlet to date and Ophelia gives it a modern spin by showing us the story from the young noblewoman's perspective. The film has been playing on the festival circuit since Sundance back in January, and surprisingly didn't make an appearance at the London Film Festival last month. Reviews have been quite middle-of-the-road so far and the trailer doesn't seem to offer anything too different. Take a look for yourself by watching the trailer for Ophelia above.
Ophelia (adapted from the book by Lisa Klein) tells the story of the young girl (Daisy Ridley) who forms a forbidden love with Hamlet (George Mackay) as war brews on Elsinore Castle. A new re-imagining of Shakespeare's Hamlet, told from Ophelia's perspective.
Claire McCarthy directs, with the supporting cast featuring Naomi Watts, Clive Owen (with a fantastic wig), Tom Felton, Daisy Head, Sebastian De Souza, Dominic Mafham, Devon Terrell, and Anna Rust.
No release date for Ophelia has been set at the moment, but we'll keep you updated as and when.
