Ophelia (movie trailer with added Daisy Ridley).

Daisy Ridley stars as Ophelia, in the movie Ophelia, a Games of Throne-like re-imagining of Hamlet, told from the main female character’s perspective. Clive Owen also stars, as does Naomi Watts. Looks interesting, at any rate.

The original went straight to VHS and this is a reissue on DVD. The film is based on an early (1923) short story by H.P. Lovecraft and features that familiar trope, a bunch […]
