Coming out the Cannes Film Festival, here’s a first look at director Claire McCarthy’s Ophelia.

Currently in production in Prague, the cast includes Daisy Ridley (upcoming Murder on the Orient Express, Star Wars: The Last Jedi), Two-time Academy Award nominee Naomi Watts (Divergent series, The Impossible), Golden Globe winning and Academy Award nominee Clive Owen (Closer, Children of Men, upcoming Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets), George MacKay (Captain Fantastic, Pride), Devon Terrell (Barry) and Tom Felton (Harry Potter series).

Set in the 14th Century but spoken in a contemporary voice, Ophelia is a dynamic re-imagining of Shakespeare’s Hamlet. Written by Semi Chellas, Ophelia is adapted from the book by Lisa Klein.

Ophelia (Ridley) takes center stage as the Queen’s (Watts) most trusted lady-in-waiting. Beautiful and intelligent, she soon captures the attention of the handsome Prince Hamlet and a forbidden love blossoms. »
