Lady Macbeth is the debut feature film from theatre director William Oldroyd.

It is loosely based on a nineteenth century novella called Lady Macbeth of Mtsensk District by Nikolai Leskov and was later adapted as an Opera. Lady Macbeth is a tragic portrait of a beautiful, determined and merciless young woman seizing her independence in a world dominated by men.

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.

The film also stars Cosmo Jarvis, Paul Hilton, Naomi Ackie, and Christopher Fairbank.

Lady Macbeth is in cinemas on 28th April 2017.
