Macbeth, a duke of Scotland, receives a prophecy from a trio of witches that one day he will become King of Scotland. Consumed by ambition and spurred to action by his wife, Macbeth murders his king and takes the throne for himself.
Phillip Anglim is a dull Macbeth that barely shows emotion,Only with a strong lead can Macbeth succeed and Anglim is quite the wrong choice.
