The new "Hamlet" historical romantic feature "Ophelia", now playing, is directed by Claire McCarthy and adapted by Semi Chellas, based on the novel by Lisa Klein, starring Daisy Ridley, Naomi Watts, Clive Owen and George MacKay:
"...as a rebellious and motherless child, 'Ophelia' (Ridley) is taken into 'Elsinore Castle' by 'Queen Gerturde' (Watts) as one of her most trusted ladies-in-waiting. Soon enough, Ophelia captures the affections of the young 'Prince Hamlet' (MacKay).
