Storyline

Brilliant young general Macbeth pulls off a glorious victory in battle before returning to an indolent court where honours are dispensed by whim. Spurred on by prophesying drifters and an ambitious wife, Macbeth sets his sights on the throne. In Kit Monkman's adventurous new adaptation, this compelling tale of unchecked ambition, soured friendship, lost intimacy and the descent into nihilism is encountered in a strange and claustrophobic territory partly conjured by the mind. Written by GSP Macbeth

Mark Rowley is spectacular!
31 March 2019 | by amiloisSee all my reviews

Very different to other adaptations I've seen, wasn't sure if I would enjoy the way it was filmed but Mark Rowley absolutely nailed Macbeth. His descent into madness was beyond impressive. He played the part so well I fell in love with the film. I've watched it several times and love his performance more each time.
