Description

High humor and human drama collide in a rollicking comedy “so clever it uplifts, so timely it hurts” ("The New York Times"). In 1899, legendary leading lady Sarah Bernhardt’s decision to assume the title role of Shakespeare’s Hamlet left critics and patriarchs aghast and indignant. Laced with forbidden romance and backstage gossip, this behind-the-scenes look at Bernhardt’s most ambitious role is a “dynamic character study” ("Variety") of one of the most famous actresses — and infamous divas — in the world.
