PG-13 | | Drama
Hamlet, Prince of Denmark, returns home to find his father murdered and his mother remarrying the murderer, his uncle. Meanwhile, war is brewing.
Hugh Crumwell was the then-principal of the RADA in which Kenneth Branagh studied. Crumwell was on the set all the time; he came as a request by Branagh to give an objective critique for the performance of each take.
If it be now, 'tis not to come; if it be not to come, it will be now; if it be not now, yet it will come: the readiness is all.
In the final fight scene between Hamlet and Laertes, and after Laertes' sword's point is tampered with, Hamlet it scratched on the shoulder with Laertes' sword. The scratch is about 1x2cm and northward in direction. Later on, when Hamlet's shoulder is seen, his scratch is much longer and thinner and runs the length of his shoulder.
