Lady Macbeth 15

Fri 19 – Thu 25 May


Synopsis

Based on the Nikolai Leskov’s 1865 novel “Lady Macbeth of Mtsensk”, the debut feature from William Oldroyd is a stark, hypnotic period drama that plays out like a Greek tragedy.

Sold into marriage to a middle-aged man, Katherine (Pugh) lives a loveless, listless existence. After witnessing an assault on her maid by the estate’s stable-hands, rather than punish the men, Katherine begins a passionate affair with groom Sebastian (Jarvis).

Intoxicated with her new found freedom, Katherine will go any lengths to protect it.

Dir: William Oldroyd

Cast: Florence Pugh, Cosmo Jarvis
