Macbeth


Macbeth
Another film version of Shakespeare's famous play, Macbeth is the story of a fearless warrior and inspiring leader, who receives a prophecy from a trio of witches that one day he will become King of Scotland. Instead he is brought low by ambition and desire. A thrilling interpretation of the dramatic realities of the times and a reimagining of what wartime must have been like for one of Shakespeare’s most famous and compelling characters, a story of all-consuming passion and ambition, set in the war torn Scottish landscape.
