Plot Summary

A hip, thoroughly contemporary adaptation of William Shakespeare's epic story of passion, betrayal, and revenge! The president of the Denmark Corporation is dead ... and already his wife is remarried to the man suspected of his murder! Nobody is more troubled than her son, Hamlet (Hawke). Now, after this hostile takeover, trust is impossible, passion is on the rise, and revenge is in the air!

i found this movie to be quite intresting. it tries to mimic Baz Luherman's 1996 Romeo +Juliet how they mix modern day of the 90s with the 17th century language of shakespeare. if you enyoy romeo + juliet , you enjoy hamlet
