  HAMNET HISTORICAL NOVEL 
TO GET MOVIE ADAPTATION
Sam Mendes will produce the film
Well, Kenneth Branagh already covered the topic with Judi Dench last year, but Sam Mendes is going to produce a big screen adaptation of Maggie O'Farrell's award winning book HAMNET. This  historical fiction novel imagines the story of Agnes, the wife of Britain’s most famous writer William Shakespeare, as she struggles to come to terms with the loss of their only son, Hamnet. The novel charts the emotional, familial and artistic consequences of that loss, bringing to life a human and heart-stopping story as the backdrop to the creation of Shakespeare’s most famous play, Hamlet. Chiara Atik is penning the script for the movie adaptation.

  1. Well, even if it sucks, at least they can claim the record for that shooting location distance.

    1. Indeed. So many of their series ordered about three years ago have flopped, don't know what was in the air that year at BBC, but everything was terrible. I haven't actually watched anything from Biebs in about a year or two, methinks. Brits have disappointed me tragically. And I lived on them. And they don't even shoot period set pieces anymore because the governments won't give them fund if they don't put black people in them, so that genre is dead too, sadly.

    2. It seems like the last 3 or 4 years has been pretty pathetic across the board as far as movies and television goes. I did see you watched Silver Skates this week though, but I'm saving that one for this winter when I'm in the mood for that kind of setting.

    3. Hope you will be able to find it on Netflix then, I'd watch it now as it is really enchanting and lovely, a kind of magic you cannot find in Hollywood.And there is my boo Kirill Zaytsev in it playing prince Arkadiy Trubetskoy :)

    1. There is something about him that I don't like either, he always seemed like a hillbilly to me, but I don't hate him, and plus I love polar settings, so I will be watching this one, and he probably dies in it LOL

  3. Gosh, I couldn't recognize Collin Farrell here..he must have sacrificed a lot and changed his appearance for this TV series.

    1. He is not pretty anymore in reality either LOL I think he is close to 50 now and had so many drinking problems over the years.

  4. I was going to add this novel to my reading list, until I read "loss of her son". With all the negativity around us lately, I'm trying to avoid anything extra, especially when it comes to children.

    P.S. I'm almost done with Elizabeth Street. GREAT read and very relatable!!

    1. He died young, Shakespeare never forgot it and his daughters mostly hated him for preferring the dead son to them LOL
