Overview

Movie fans will have little difficulty recalling the work of Alex Hyde-White, a key contributor to such pictures as Ishtar, Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade and Pretty Woman. The son of distinguished character actor Wilfrid Hyde-White (The Toy) - who died in 1991 - Alex spent many years contending with the "ghost" of his father's legacy - which uncannily parallels the experiences of the protagonist in William Shakespeare's Hamlet. In this first-person documentary film, Alex works with a cast on a three-day rehearsal of the said Elizabethean tragedy, then participates in a stage reading of the entire play. Over the course of it all, events from the private lives of Alex and his co-participants begin to align themselves with the dramatic developments of the play, sounding reflections on the often blurry line betwen art and life and the myriad of ways in which those two spheres can illuminate one another.
