Random Movie Monday — Rosencrantz and Guildenstern Are Dead

Happy Monday! Today’s random movie is Rosencrantz and Guildenstern Are Dead (HU DVD 1185). It stars Gary Oldman and Tim Roth as the titular characters.

Here’s our summary:

The fringe characters from Shakespeare’s ‘Hamlet’ take center stage at Elsinore.

Yes, our summary is short, but there’s really no way we can capture what this movie’s about in a few succinct sentences. Written and directed by Tom Stoppard (my favorite playwright), and based on his play of the same name, the movie is absurd, funny, and occasionally deadly serious.
