It’s such a pleasure to be able to see performances from plays staged at the Old Vic. All the more so when it’s a chance to watch a young Ben Whishaw portraying Hamlet. This is his raw and emotional “Too Solid Flesh.” performance. Moving and painful to watch, this brief scene so clearly shows what an incredible talent he was unleashing on the world. He continues to do so in numerous movies that showcase his abilities which know no bounds.
