Hamlet (U)

Shakespeare on Screen


The great Laurence Olivier brings Shakespeare’s tragedy to life in this much-praised film version of the classic tale of 'will he or won't he'.

Laurence Olivier directed and produced the film which won four Oscars including Best Film and Best Actor for Olivier’s performance, as well as art direction and design.

The story of Prince Hamlet's inner struggle over whether or not he should kill his uncle, whom he suspects has murdered his father, the former King, has debatably never been better told.
