Something is rotten in medieval-era Denmark, where political intrigue swirls around the imperial court like dark magic.

Reviews
Brevity is the soul of wit, and sumptuousness the soul of costume drama, which the movie "Ophelia" quite extravagantly is. The images are gorgeous; the feminism, gratifying.
Bob Mondello, NPR
The new costume drama 'Ophelia' tells the famous story from Hamlet's on-again, off-again girlfriend's point of view. And then it turns it on its head.
