You may watch below the tense trailer of Lady Macbeth, the upcoming drama movie directed by William Oldroyd from a script by Alice Birch based on the novel “Lady Macbeth of the Mtsensk District” written by Nikolai Leskov and starring Florence Pugh, Cosmo Jarvis, Paul Hilton, Naomi Ackie, and Christopher Fairbank:
“Rural England, 1865. Katherine (Florence Pugh) 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.”
Florence Pugh is delivering here a vivid performance! And it doesn’t feel like she’s acting: she IS Lady Macbeth!
The release date of the movie Lady Macbeth is set to June 2, 2017.
