Academy Award® nominee Benedict Cumberbatch (BBC’s Sherlock, The Imitation Game) takes on the title role of Shakespeare’s great tragedy. Now seen by over 750,000 people worldwide, the original 2015 NT Live broadcast returns to cinemas.

As a country arms itself for war, a family tears itself apart. Forced to avenge his father’s death but paralysed by the task ahead, Hamlet rages against the impossibility of his predicament, threatening both his sanity and the security of the state. Directed by Lyndsey Turner (Posh, Chimerica) and produced by Sonia Friedman Productions.


"Benedict Cumberbatch is a blazing five-star Hamlet."
Daily Telegraph

"One of the most visually and atmospherically stunning productions I’ve ever seen, of anything, ever."
Time Out

"This is a Hamlet for a world on the edge: a warning from history, and a plea for new ideas from a new generation."
Variety
