Ophelia (Daisy Ridley), a rebellious, young woman, is taken in by the Queen of Denmark, Gertrude (Naomi Watts), to be one of her ladies-in-waiting. Through the years, she becomes one of the Queen’s most favored, and when Hamlet (George MacKay), the Queen’s son, comes back home from studying, they eventually fall in love. As a power struggle arises in the castle, Ophelia needs to make a hard decision -- her love or her life. This reimagining of Shakespeare’s Hamlet is based on a novel by Lisa Klein, and is directed by Claire McCarthy.
