Lady Macbeth
director:
William Oldroyd
cast:
Florence Pugh, Cosmo Jarvis, Paul Hilton

Set in 19th century rural England, a young bride who has been sold into marriage to a middle-aged man discovers an unstoppable desire within herself as she enters into an affair with a worker on her estate. “Oldroyd’s brilliance (and Pugh’s) is to probe this age-old archetype—the Gothic antiheroine, the adulteress—and find pathos and cruelty. It’s also to uncover the complex web of hierarchies—of race and class, as well as gender—that ensnare and empower her.” (Washington Post) Adapted by screenwriter Alice Birch from Lady Macbeth of the Mtsensk, an 1865 novella by Russian author Nikolai Leskov.
