A clever sci-fi flick with classic characters you may just recognize
We loved viewing Hamlet's Ghost.
You've never seen Shakespeare like this. The set-up in this script written by Walker Haynes is part Noises Off, part X-Files, part John Grisham, part Shakespeare, and all engaging.
The concept is intriguing; the story is involving. You won't want to miss a minute. The cast represents both veteran and new actors. Everyone is cast perfectly. The handsome Hayes is in the lead role. Trained at the Royal Academy of Dramatic Art, Hayes has turned some heads with his mildly successful previous projects. Hamlet's Ghost got some good talk and energy at this summer's Cannes film festival, too. Not bad for an independent filmmaker.
And Stephanie Zimbalist is Queen Gertrude. How could anything featuring Stephanie Zimbalist be anything but classy? Good work, all.
