Hamlet, a 1996 movie, is directed by Kenneth Branagh, streaming on Amazon Prime Video. It is a drama movie adapted, originally from the play “Hamlet” by William Shakespeare.
It stars Kenneth Branagh as Prince Hamlet, Derek Jacobi as King Claudius, Julie Christie as Gertrude, and Kate Winslet as Ophelia.
Denmark goes through a dark fear when King Hamlet passes away, and the throne is taken by Prince Hamlet’s uncle Claudius. While Prince Hamlet learns that Claudius has also married his dead brother's wife, Gertrude, he is also unable to cope well with his father's death.
Later the ghost of King Hamlet appears to the Prince and enlightens him about his murder by Claudius and asks his son to avenge his death.
Nicholas Farrell, playing the role of Horatio, also played the character of Hamlet in Shakespeare’s animated tales, Hamlet, which came in 1992.
This also came to attention that Robin Williams and Billy Crystal were denied, to be together at the same time on the set due to the fear of them cracking up everyone, which would eventually delay the production hours.
