Director Michael Almereyda brilliantly adapted the Shakespearean tragedy Hamlet into a modern day film that can be enjoyed by today's society.The emotion from the original play remains, but the new setting and time period is perfectly adjusted.Each scene is so carefully constructed that it possesses a unique feel different from others. Each of the actors' and actresses' personalities and physical qualities are inspirationally used to compliment the characters they play. Almereyda succeeded in producing a film with an Americanized perspective and using technology in a well thought out and effective manner.
