Lady Macbeth is like a Victorian Gothic noir with more than a hint of Lady Chatterley's Lover.
An adaptation of a Russian novel which is inspired by Shakespeare's Macbeth.
The film is set in 19th century north east of England. Katherine (Florence Pugh) is a young teenager married off to Alexander (Paul Hilton.) He is much older than her, cold and maybe even sexually inadequate.
Alexander is the son of a wealthy mine owner, Boris (Christopher Fairbank) who is brutish and cruel.
Trapped in a cold, loveless marriage with only the black maid Anna as company. When both men are away, Katherine takes an interest in Sebastian (Cosmo Jarvis) a mixed race young estate worker and they have a passionate affair.
When Boris finds out of the affair, Katherine does not shy away from what she has done. When Alexander returns, she flaunts Sebastian in front of him. Katherine becomes crueller as she desptaches both her father in law and husband.
However both Anna and Sebastian find out that Katherine is willing to get more darker to get what she wants.
Lady Macbeth features a mesmerising and beguiling performance from Florence Pugh. It is far away from these slushy chocolate box romantic period dramas. Katherine is steel edged and deadly.
