Lady Macbeth


Available until June 10, 2021

Northern England, 1860s. Katherine (Florence Pugh) is the new mistress on a mid-sized farm. But she’s soon put in her place by her boorish husband (Paul Hilton) and his bullying father (Christopher Fairbank)’and becomes little more than a servant. When both men are called away, she embarks on a reckless, passionate affair with a farmhand (Cosmo Jarvis). And when her father-in-law returns she is determined to prevail, no matter what it takes… A victim of oppression emerges as a full-fledged femme fatale.

"Pugh and the film around her hold an audience transfixed and conflicted to the end." Ty Burr, Boston Globe

"A wonderful performance in a very fine film." Michael Phillips, Chicago Tribune

"This brilliantly feminist British indie film plunges a cold, sharp knife into the back of bonnet dramas." Cath Clarke, Time Out
