Fathom Events, BY Experience and National Theatre Live present a special encore of Hamlet, featuring Academy-Award® nominee Benedict Cumberbatch in the title role for an extraordinary one-night cinema event on Tuesday, November 15. Originally captured at the Barbican theatre in London in 2015, the production was directed by Lyndsey Turner, produced by Sonia Friedman Productions, and tells the story of a son who is forced to avenge his father's death but rages against the impossibility of his predicament, threatening both his sanity and the security of the state. As a country arms itself for war, a family tears itself apart.

really liked the modern day version. put things in a different view. loved all the performers and Benedict was great. He had some amazingly profound and emotional scenes that really surprised me, but he also had his signature quirky moments too.
