Tom Stoppard`s ingenious comedy twist on Shakespeare`s Hamlet
Certificate: PG
Running Time: 127 mins
Retail Price: £15.99
Release Date:

Tom Stoppard`s ingenious comedy twist on Shakespeare`s Hamlet sees the focus of attention switch to two minor characters, Rosencrantz and Guilderstern (Gary Oldman and Tim Roth). A comic double act with a routine based on verbal rather than phsical sparring, they stumble blindly through the action, desperately trying to make sense of it as they go, completely unaware of the fate that is in store for them. One of the funniest and most original reworkings of Shakespeare you are ever likely to see.
