Modern-day New York City adaptation of Shakespeare's immortal story about Hamlet's plight to avenge his father's murder.
At 29, Ethan Hawke is the youngest actor to play Hamlet on film. He is also close to the age Hamlet is supposed to be in the original text, which is 30.
The play's the thing, with which I'll catch the conscience of the king.
When we first see Claudius speaking, his mouth is obviously saying something other than what we hear. It lasts for about five seconds.
