Break out the hot chocolate and watch...,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Kenneth Branagh made a lovely movie to watch on a bleak midwinter's evening, when it is cold outside, snuggle up on the sofa with a hot chocolate annd let this movie lift your spirits.
It is a black and white movie to start out.
The movie centers around a group of people preparing the 'ultimate Christmas play' Hamlet.
I liked how the characters who start out as stereotypes claim their own place in the movie universe.
It is an insight into the troubles of rehearsing and preparing for the opening night, the differences between people, their ambitions, their struggles with themselves and others.
