Subject:        Children of the Century / Underworld

The biopic Children of the Century, about George Sand and Alfred Musset,
has a scene in which the two discuss a play Sand (Juliette Binoche) has
written about Lorenzo de Medici.  Musset (Benoit Magimel) says her
Lorenzo is Hamlet, an Italian Hamlet, but still Hamlet.

There's also a scene in Underworld where the main vampire character
(Kate Beckinsdale) shoots busts of Shakespeare for target practice.
