Hamlet: A family torn apart

Published:Wednesday | November 11, 2015 | 12:00 AM

The National Theatre encore performance of Hamlet is showing this Sunday at Palace Cineplex.

Academy Award nominee Benedict Cumberbatch (Frankenstein at the National Theatre) takes on the title role in Shakespeare's great tragedy.

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.
