Take Two: “Ophelia” (PG-13)

The new film “Ophelia” is a fan fiction-style bit of conjecture based on Lisa Klein’s novel that reworks Shakespeare’s “Hamlet,” but from Ophelia’s point of view. Daisy Ridley (“Star Wars: The Last Jedi”) takes on the title role with George MacKay (“Captain Fantastic”) as Hamlet, Naomi Watts (“Insurgent”) as Gertrude and Clive Owen (“Children of Men”) as Claudius. It was directed by Claire McCarthy (“The Turning”) and written by Semi Chellas (“American Woman”).
