Critic Reviews for Ophelia
Oh dear. Oh no. Ophelia. A curious, if ambitious, central conceit is here battered into inconsequentiality by a scattershot screenplay that flees so far from the original Shakespeare that it leaves little purpose, or relevant material, in the retelling.
A confused melodrama more fitting for a retelling of Twilight in the woods than of the greatest play ever written.
Ridley does a fine job on all fronts, so that the second half of the film rises above its theatrical tethers. George MacKay does his share of the heavy lifting.
...beautifully photographed and impressively staged but convoluted and over-the-top...all right, so it's a popcorn movie!
The picture is nowhere near as memorable as other more controversial twists on misunderstood women of history and fiction.
