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.
Viggo Mortensen, the star of one of my favourite movies, A History Of Violence (2005) is back with something new and thoroughly intriguing. Directed and written by Matt Ross, Captain Fantastic is a story of a father who chose to raise his children isolated from the outside world…
The subject matter of this movie is very interesting to me. Not because I have ideas of one day raising children in the wilderness instead of ‘the real world,’ but because I’m curious about the events that could have resulted in such an unconventional decision. I really can’t see myself personally choosing such a life, for several reasons including the fact that bugs and I don’t get along as well as we out to.
