Lady Macbeth

Dir. William Oldroyd. UK, 2016. 1h 29m. Starring Florence Pugh, Cosmo Jarvis, Naomi Ackie, Christopher Fairbank, Bill Fellows.

Florence Pugh gives a captivating performance as a young bride married off to a bitter old landowner in a chilling period drama set in 19th-century rural England. Domestic tensions intensify when she begins a passionate affair with a young worker from the estate.

"A British, period-set chamber thriller with a star-making turn on one side of the camera, and one hell of a directing debut on the other." ★★★★★ Tim Robey, The Telegraph

"Florence Pugh is lethally charismatic in William Oldroyd’s daring journey into the darkest corners of the world of bonnets and bows" ★★★★★ Peter Bradshaw, The Guardian
