Screener Squad: Ophelia

Ophelia Movie Review


**LIGHT SPOILERS AT 37:00** Did you ever read Hamlet and feel bad that Ophelia wasn’t given more to do? Wonder no more with this movie Ophelia, which re-contextualizes the plot of Hamlet from Ophelia’s perspective to give her more of an active role in making the plot happen. On the surface, this sounds like a potentially interesting idea to give a more modern perspective to a classic stage play. Unfortunately, London, Justin, and Lexie were not very enchanted by what they saw. Listen to their full rant here.
