Limited Release Date (May 21): Rosencrantz & Guildenstern Are Undead
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.
