Loosely based on the novella Lady Macbeth of Mtsensk District, Lady Macbeth is the debut feature film from theatre director William Oldroyd and stars Florence Pugh.
Here’s the synopsis:
Rural England, 1865. Katherine is stifled by her 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 on her husband’s estate, a force is unleashed inside her so powerful that she will stop at nothing to get what she wants.
Lady Macbeth will receive its UK release on the 28th April, 2016.
