Subject:        Hamlet in Ulster

A new film version of 'Hamlet' is being shot in Derry (article URL
below).  The dialogue will be spoken partly in English, and partly in
Irish.  It will, inevitably, be a heavily politicised interpretation.  I
wonder if the idea to film an Irish 'Hamlet' was germinated via the
representation of the young Prince as an Irish-American in Almereyda's
film?
