Ophelia (out Aug 1) stars Naomi Watts, Daisy Ridley and Clive Owen and retells the story of Hamlet but from the perspective of Ophelia (with a few details changed). Changing the viewpoint lessens the impact of key events (such as the fate of Polonius) and the end result is a choppy, disappointing drama. Grade: C.
