Treachery. Madness. Murder. The story of Hamlet has been told for 400 years...but it's never been told like this! Mel Gibson takes on his richest part to date, the title role in a dynamic new version of Shakespeare's Hamlet. Directed by Franco Zeffirelli. Gibson plays the prince of medieval-era Denmark, who senses treachery behind his royal father's death. Glenn Close plays Hamlet's mother Gertrude, all too dangerously entangled in that treachery. A brilliant supporting cast, including Alan Bates as Claudius, Paul Scofield as the ghost of Hamlet's father, Ian Holm as Polonius and Helena Bonham-Carter as Ophelia.

Fine modern rendition of William Shakespeare's classic tale of revenge. Gibson proves that he is an actor as much as a hunk!
