Plot Summary

As ghastly witches prophesy that Macbeth, the Thane of Glamis, will soon become the King of Scotland, ambitious Lady Macbeth prompts her husband to act. So, to speed things up, conflicted Macbeth seizes the opportunity, and as blood stains his hands, the throne is his for the taking. However, murder is an unbearable burden, and before long, rabid paranoia blackens the conscience and imperils the sanity of the cursed couple. Now, only death awaits. Can a mere mortal escape fate?

Trivia The first solo directorial effort by Joel Coen. All of his previous films have been co-directed with his brother Ethan Coen, though Ethan was uncredited as director until 2004. See more »
Goofs When Banquo and Fleance prepare to leave, Macbeth tells them their horses are ready. But Denzel Washington gets the line backwards. He says, "I commend them to your backs," instead of "I commend you to their backs." He speaks of plural horses, but in the next shot, Fleance is riding the only horse, and Banquo is walking.

Quotes Macbeth: Tomorrow, and tomorrow, and tomorrow, creeps in this petty pace from day to day to the last syllable of recorded time. And all our yesterdays have lighted fools the way to dusty death. Out, out, brief candle. Life is but a walking shadow... a poor player that struts and frets his hour upon the stage and then is heard no more. It is a tale told by an idiot... full of sound and fury, signifying nothing.
