What is a Hamlet?
The plot of a movie is quite a departure from the story. It involves the inner thoughts of the characters and their motivations. In a basic plot, the central idea is to have a happy ending. However, it becomes hard to achieve this as the story loses its motivation. The fact that many people love and loathe this movie is probably because it is a hamlet.Â
To understand the meaning of this line, one must look into the play’s plot. In the play, Hamlet is played by Tom Hanks. While playing the part, it is often said that the role of the hamlet goes to the young Abbot Bottomley (played by the great Milla Jovovich in the movie and later in another play by John Hurt).
