Lady Macbeth (DVD)
Inspired by Nikolai Leskov's 'Lady Macbeth of the Mtsensk District', this is a film noir in the guise of a Victorian costume drama with EE Rising Star Florence Pugh (The Falling) starring in this dark and stormy period drama from director William Oldroyd. When a young woman is bought, married off and oppressed by an older man, her sanity slowly starts to unwind. Taking comfort in the arms of the stable boy sets off a chain of events as unstoppable as they are tragic. ***** The Guardian - 'Brilliantly chilling subversion of a classic.' ***** The Telegraph - 'Lusty, jaw-droppingly amoral bodice ripper.' **** The Independent - 'Like a cross between Wuthering Heights and The Postman Always Rings Twice.' ***** Den of Geek - 'Twisting between vestal purity and mirthless psychotic, (Florence) Pugh delivers a pristine self-assured character study well beyond her years.'
