The Play’s the Thing

or, Shakespeare in Space

Here’s what we watched together on Saturday Night:

Watch Hamlet on PBS. See more from Great Performances.

The Royal Shakespeare Company’s film adaptation of Hamlet, the Bard’s amazing ghost story / whodunit / will-he-do-it tragedy, starring, to our science fiction fan kids’ delight, Patrick Stewart and David Tennant, in performances, respectively, seemingly in command & seemingly mad. That we can watch such things for free over the internet via Great Performances on PBS is something for which I am immensely grateful. That this is just one more story we share as a family – that’s priceless.

Coming up for this weekend, another classic: Tron.
