Hamlet (1990)


With a daring and depth few of his American contemporaries seem prepared to match, Kevin Kline both starred in and directed HAMLET for the New York Shakespeare Festival.  Now with the felicitous addition of Kirk Browning as co-director, he has brought his indelible HAMLET to television where, as The New York Times stated, “It is eloquent, moving and at times thrilling. The shrewdly edited version uses tight close-ups and captures small crowd scenes without a sense of confinement.  The teleplay flows with commendable grace from beginning to end, all urged on by Kline’s intelligent interpretation.”
