Here’s Our First(ish) Look at Daisy Ridley as a Not-So-Helpless Ophelia

Whether or not the movie lives up to my hopes, I'm incredibly excited at even the idea of reimagining such a complex, undervalued character through a feminist lens. And that's not a knock at Shakespeare. I wouldn't dream. But we saw Ophelia through Hamlet's eyes–that was the entire point.
