Lady Macbeth (15)
UK/2016/89mins/15. Dir: William Oldroyd. With Florence Pugh, Christopher Fairbank
When young bride Katherine embarks on a passionate affair to escape her loveless and sadistic marriage to an older man, a new force is unleashed inside her; so powerful that she will stop at nothing to get what she wants. This stark, sensual and at times shocking 19th century tragedy, set in rural England and adapted from Leskov’s 1865 novella, profiles a defiant, passionate young woman struggling against suffocating societal norms.
