Subject: Hamlet

I was wondering if anyone would mind letting me know what time period the
costume and set designs were in in the four hour _Hamlet_ by Kenneth Branagh.
It seemed like a mixture of time periods, but I'm afraid I'm not really sure.

Late 1890s, early 20th century.  The modified "Gibson Girl" look of the
women's costumes is the key:  suggestions of bustles, but no actual bustles.
Think of images you've seen of Lillie Langtry or her contemporaries.
