Storyline

Macbeth, the Thane of Glamis, receives a prophecy from a trio of witches that one day he will become King of Scotland. Consumed by ambition and spurred to action by his wife, Macbeth murders his king and takes the throne for himself.

“79% Rotten Tomatoes”:http://www.rottentomatoes.com/m/macbeth_2015/

Critics Consensus: Faithful to the source material without sacrificing its own cinematic flair, Justin Kurzel’s Macbeth rises on the strength of a mesmerizing Michael Fassbender performance to join the upper echelon of big-screen Shakespeare adaptations.

“Guardian Review - Peter Bradshaw 4 / 5 stars”:http://www.theguardian.com/film/2015/may/23/macbeth-review-fassbender-and-cotillard-full-of-sound-and-fury-in-significant-shakespeare-adaptation

Macbeth review: Fassbender and Cotillard full of sound and fury in significant Shakespeare adaptation

This is not the traditional stage Macbeth, crammed into claustrophobic interior spaces. It is conceived in (and almost dwarfed by) a vast Scottish plain, like Peter Jackson’s Middle Earth.

The Highlands are recast as a glowing outback in this extremely stylish and sometimes inspired new version by the director of Snowtown
