Hot Hollywood star Ethan Hawke (GATTACA) is joined by Julia Stiles (10 THINGS I HATE ABOUT YOU) and Bill Murray (RUSHMORE) in a hip, thoroughly contemporary adaptation of William Shakespeare's epic story of passion, betrayal and revenge! The president of the Denmark Corporation is dead... and already his wife is remarried to the man suspected of his murder! Nobody is more troubled by this than her son, Hamlet (Hawke). Now, after this hostile takeover, vengeance is in the air! Also featuring Kyle MacLachlan (ONE NIGHT STAND), Liev Schreiber (SCREAM 3), Diane Venora (THE INSIDER) and Sam Shepard (THE PELICAN BRIEF) in an outstanding ensemble - the power of Shakespeare's timeless words is matched by the stunningly modern look and feel of this widely acclaimed highly entertaining big-screen event!
