Storyline

Father and Son dynamics come into focus as a troupe of actors, and others, gather to rehearse and perform a stage-reading of a famous play in...three days. Reality intrudes as they come together and strangers bond, like in war. Without a net, they galvanize during rehearsal while the lead actor manager, both as himself and his character of Hamlet, grapples with the unexpected task of coming to terms with his powerful and famous father. A 'cliff notes' examination of one of the best plays ever written by the best cast they could find, including three famous sons of three very famous actors; reality documentary weaves with neo-classic drama to create an original take on a most primal story, all taking place over... Three Days. Written by Anonymous

Quotes

Claude: A lot of people say the scariest thing in the world is public speaking, ever hear that. Wouldn't you think it would be a shark?
Claude: It's like flying without a net. You go to the circus and you see someone do a triple and they have a net and you go "yay!" But if they don't have a net you go "Holy crap! They don't have a net. Well, we don't have a net."

3 Days is a film well worth seeing
3 May 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This film was a delightful piece with many layers and meanings, both the Hamlet story that we know and the personal stories of the cast and crew.

The editing was skillful and added the the many story levels and the actors (Alex Hyde-White (also the director and writer) Stefanie Powers and Richard Chamberlain to name a few) were superb and the behind the scenes footage was surprisingly thoughtful, funny and at times moving.

The traditional story of Hamlet abbreviated somewhat and was done in the style of a 'reading' after only 3 days of preparation. It was an extraordinary vision and accomplishment for the film's writer/director, Alex Hyde-White.

A film well worth watching.
