'Ophelia'

We've seen Shakespeare's play about the melancholy Dane retold from Rosencrantz and Guildenstern's perspective; now it's time for Ophelia's revisionist turn. The Last Jedi's Daisy Ridley stars as the young woman who realizes something smells rotten in the state of Denmark regarding her revenge-seeking suitor; as she begins to navigate a path between her family and her hand-wringing beau, the once-peripheral character steps into the spotlight and begins to lend the Bard's emo-bro play a more feminine bent. Clive Owen and Naomi Watts show up to lend additional star power to filmmaker Claire McCarthy's Hamlet 2.0 project, but this is Ridley's show – she's the one likely to make this worth a month of grace o' Sundays.
