Starring Daisy Ridley, Naomie Watts, Clive Owen and Tom Felton, Ophelia is the Claire McCarthy directed re-imagining of William Shapeare’s famous Hamlet.
Set in medieval-era Denmark, the queen’s brightest lady-in-waiting, Ophelia, finds herself drawn to Hamlet, the charismatic and elusive crown prince. Their secretive love affair begins and soon outside forces threaten to derail their union and devastate the royal family for good. Now Ophelia must decide where her devotion will ultimately lie…
I’m in to see the Hamlet story from this new perspective. I’m also equally interested to watch Ridley in a role other than her very high profile Star Wars projects.
Another thing, is it just me for whom Keira Knightly came to mind while I looked at Ridley in this trailer?
Devon Terrell, Sebastian De Souza, Dominic Mafham, Daisy Head, Adriana Hercigonja and Mia Quiney also star.
Starring Will Smith, Clive Owen, Mary Elizabeth Winstead and Benedict Wong; Oscar winning director Ang Lee’s latest is an action / drama / sci-fi movie about an over-the-hill hitman who faces off against a younger clone version of himself.
I’m always intrigued by movies where one actor plays two characters who have to interact with one another. How convincingly will the execution of the creative challenge be? I definitely hope the answer is excellent.
As for the actual story line, I like the idea of facing off with a younger version of myself. Well, as long as it’s not a super-fit young me and a fifty plus year-old version of me. In fact, I think I’m more curious to find out how my opinions and attitudes willhave changed.
Douglas Hodge, Ralph Brown, Theodora Miranne, Linda Emond, Tim Connolly and David Shae also star.
