Where can we watch or Stream Online?

Movie based on?
The film tells the story of a Viking prince, Amleth, who watches his uncle murder his father and usurp the throne (if that core plot sounds familiar, Eggers told IGN that the film is based on the same ancient Norse legend that also inspired William Shakespeare’s Hamlet)
