Ambitious, Clever, Slow, Small scale, Long

See it if you're interested in a novel approach to WS. The verse is used cleverly; Ophelia has her day. The play needs cuts; it wears out its welcome.

Don't see it if you'd rather see real WS. I would. Even an ambitious reworking isn't close to the great original. MVS suffers further from uneven acting. Read more
