It was described by critics as the best and most intelligent Hamlet of recent times. Now, the award winning 2008 London stage play, starring David Tennant and Patrick Stewart, is filmed for DVD. This visually stunning screen version, filmed on location with the original stage cast, captures the atmosphere and excitement of the acclaimed production. Set in Denmark, it recounts how Prince Hamlet exacts revenge on his uncle Claudius, who has murdered Hamlets father, the King, taken the throne and married Gertrude, Hamlets mother. It takes Shakespeares greatest play to a far wider audience than ever before.
