At least the 22nd time William Shakespeares most famous tragedy has been brought to the screen, Kenneth Branaghs film adaptation of Hamlet was the first to preserve Shakespeares entire text, uncut and unabridged. Moving the action into the 19th century, Branagh cast himself in the title role and, as in his adaptation of Much Ado About Nothing, assembled an eclectic group of actors that mixed veteran Shakespearean performers (including John Mills, Judi Dench, John Gielgud, and Derek Jacobi) with Hollywood stars not known for interpreting the Bards work (among them Robin Williams, Charlton Heston, Billy Crystal, and Jack Lemmon). However, unlike most interpretations, its the women who really carry the show, with the two best performances delivered by Kate Winslet as Ophelia and Julie Christie as Gertrude. As usual, Hamlet finds himself torn over what to do after the death of his father and his mothers hasty remarriage. Branaghs version of Hamlet was also notable on a technical level, as it was filmed in the 70-mm format for increased visual clarity and detail.~ Mark Deming, All Movie Guide
