Hamlet ★½

i made it about half way through this before i had to shut it off. i think the story of hamlet is fascinating and interesting but the language is just unbearable. it sounds so ridiculous when they say the original dialogue in this modern setting. and even though i could essentially follow the plot from context and prior knowledge of the story, they may as well have been speaking a foreign language. i tried to stick it out for Ethan Hawke who i love, and i think the cast is terrific and i give them props for putting together a terrific late 90s early 00s cast. but yeah this just was not my thing whatsoever.
