On the Horizon

Hamlet 2 is coming. It’s one of the things to which I look forward with anxious anticipation. Last time I taught Shakespeare and film, the Branagh As You Like It was about to appear, and I pointed everyone toward it beyond the bounds of the class. This time, I may be pointing them toward Hamlet 2.

It was at the Sundance Film Festival, and it’s received good comments.

Hurry up and come to a theatre near me!
