Watch Hamlet Starring David Tennant via Films on Demand

Watch the Royal Shakespeare Company Production of Hamlet via the library’s subscription to Films on Demand: Master Academic Collection.

Description from Films on Demand:

Called “the greatest Hamlet of his generation” by Guardian reviewer Robert McCrum, Scottish actor David Tennant headlines this edgy film version of the acclaimed 2008 Royal Shakespeare Company stage production. Tennant is supported by a host of gifted players—including the impeccable Patrick Stewart as Claudius and Oliver Ford Davies in an astonishing performance as a doddering yet strangely leonine Polonius. Modern costumes, shrewd textual abridgements, and a recurring motif of high-tech video surveillance all connect the play to 21st-century anxieties, but these attributes in no way eclipse Tennant’s forceful mixture of rage, sorrow, and manic humor. Original broadcast title: Hamlet. A BBC Production. (2 parts, 88 minutes and 94 minutes)
