Beautiful, Tragic and Meaningful - a must see for men and women
5 November 2018 | by jmccayausSee all my reviews

I saw Ophelia this evening as part of the British Film Festival in Sydney. The large audience loved the film and strong applause accompanied the credits. The movie is beautiful in so many ways and captures the attention of the viewer. There were moments of great laughter and joy, of sadness, reverence and tragedy. This is a must see movie with a star-studded cast. The story, although well known from Shakespeare's Hamlet, brings alive the ancient but always contemporary tension between love, power and vengeance. Although a tragedy, the viewer will walk away feeling satisfied with this movie.
