In The Bleak Midwinter Film Poster


Michael Maloney stars as an out-of-work actor who decides to put on a production of 'Hamlet' over the Christmas holidays: with a cast of only six and in a church under threat from developers. The actors selected include a drunk, an ex-child actor and a panto dame (who is to play Gertrude). All Maloney's character has to do is knock them into shape, in less than two weeks. Director Kenneth Branagh rounds up the usual suspects (including John Sessions and Richard Briers).
