“Imagine Alfred Hitchcock directing Wuthering Heights”
Rural England, 1865. Katherine is sold into a loveless marriage to a bitter man twice her age, and his cold, unforgiving family. When she embarks on a passionate affair with a young worker, a force inside her is set free – a force so powerful that she will stop at nothing to get what she wants, unleashing a maelstrom of murder and mayhem on her husband’s country estate. Based on the classic Russian novel and showcasing an astonishing performance from Florence Pugh as the unforgettable antihero Katherine, Lady Macbeth is both timeless and timely; a deliciously dark and radically original twist on a period film.
