Limited Release Date (May 21): Rosencrantz & Guildenstern Are Undeadon March 11, 2010 at 5:03 am
Living in the back room of his father’s doctor’s office, broke, frustrated ladies man Julian (Jake Hoffman) scores his big break when he lands the job directing an off-Broadway version of Hamlet. Except it’s a bizarre adaptation written by a pale Romanian impresario named Theo (John Ventimiglia), who is actually a master vampire! Theo hopes to lure the real Hamlet (Kris Lemche) out of hiding so the two can end a centuries long feud over Shakespeare’s Ophelia. Meanwhile, Julian pines for his ex-girlfriend, Anna (Devon Aoki), who is dating mobster Bobby Bianchi (Ralph Macchio), who’s intent on creating the next great invention. Add into the mix a dimwitted detective (Jeremy Sisto), the Holy Grail, the Rosicrucian Society, a bunch of sexy vamps, God, and a score by Sean Lennon; and you’ve got the perfect mix of Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Terry Gilliam, Dude Where’s My Car, and Woody Allen all in one fantastic film!
Kind of a convoluted plot but still looking forward to this one. I liked the trailer it made me chuckle.
