Hamlet : Screenplay, Introduction and Film Diary
by Kenneth Branagh and William Shakespeare and Russell Jackson




Overview -
The tie in book to the acclaimed Shakespearean film by Kenneth Branagh, whose Henry V and Much Ado About Nothing were huge critical and popular successes. Often credited with creating a popular movie audience for Shakespeare, Kenneth Branagh has wanted for many years to bring to the screen the complete, full length version of Hamlet, Shakespeare's greatest play. "The film, like the play, will have something for everyone," he says. "Its a ghost story, a thriller, an action packed murder mystery, and a great tragedy that is profoundly moving." With an outstanding cast of international actors including Derek Jacobi as Claudius, Julie Christie as Gertrude, Kate Winslet as Ophelia, Charlton Heston as the Player King, Robin Williams as Osric, and Gerard Depardieu as Reynaldo Branagh's version, in which he will play the title role as well as direct, is sure to go down in film history. This beautiful volume includes Branagh's introduction and screenplay adaptation of Shakespeare's text, color and black and white stills, and a production diary that takes us behind the scenes for a day to day look at the shooting of his film.
