WIN tickets to Ophelia

Posted Monday 24 Jun 2019

Fancy a dose of Shakespeare? We're giving away five double passes to director Claire McCarthy's take on Shakespeare's Hamlet. Set in the 14th century but spoken in a contemporary voice, Ophelia is a dynamic re-imagining of Shakespeare's Hamlet. Ophelia (Daisy Ridley) takes center stage as Queen Gertrude's (Naomi Watts) most trusted lady-in-waiting. Beautiful and intelligent, she soon captures the attention of the handsome Prince Hamlet (George MacKay) and a forbidden love blossoms. As war brews, lust and betrayal are tearing Elsinore Castle apart from within and Ophelia must decide between her true love or her own life in order to protect a very dangerous secret. Ophelia is in NZ cinemas on 11 July, 2019.
Directed by Claire McCarthy, and starring Daisy Ridley, Naomi Watts, Clive Owen, George Mackay and Tom Felton.
