A classic tale of murder and deceit, Prince of Denmark (also known as Prince of Jutland and Royal Deceit) explores the true Danish origins of William Shakespeare’s timeless tragedy Hamlet, featuring an all-star cast of award-winning performers.
Prince Amled (Academy Award® winner Christian Bale, The Fighter, The Dark Knight Rises) slips into a spiral of stark bewilderment after witnessing the violent murder of his beloved father, King Hardvendel (BAFTA Award winner Tom Wilkinson, The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel) to the hand of his ruthless brother Fenge (Gabriel Byrne, Miller’s Crossing). Consoling his mother, the coveted Queen Geruth (Academy Award® winner Helen Mirren, The Queen), Amled bides his time in order to gather the leadership and strength to rise and regain the rightful throne.
Also featuring Kate Beckinsale (Underworld), Brian Cox (The Bourne Identity), Andy Serkis (Lord of the Rings Trilogy), Ewen Bremmer (Trainspotting) and directed by Gabriel Axel (the Academy Award® winning Babette’s Feast), Prince of Denmark draws closely from the 11th century works of Saxo Grammaticus, exploring one of the most notorious tales of royal tragedy and bloody revenge in history.
