Critic Reviews for Ophelia

Audience Reviews for Ophelia

  • May 12, 2020
    A feminist reinterpretation of William Shakespeare's Hamlet, Ophelia is a compelling new vision of this classic tale. The film follows a young girl named Ophelia who becomes a lady-in-waiting to the Queen and is soon drawn into the court's politics and has a torrid love affair with the Queen's son. Starring Daisy Ridley, Naomi Watts, and Clive Owen, the film has a pretty solid cast that gives good performances. And the writers do an impressive job at honoring the original material and themes while adding in a few twists. Also, the sets and costumes are especially well-done, and the score is remarkably evocative. While it takes a few liberties, Ophelia proves to be a fresh and provocative take on Shakespeare's work.
