    Abstract:
    Amanda Kane Rooks explores the representation of Ophelia in Michael Almereyda's film adaptation of Hamlet. Rooks argues that Almereyda's film does not conform to the tendency in film adaptations to reduce Ophelia to the status of tragic prop and that it instead imbues this character with an ideological potency to rival Hamlet himself.
