In England, 1865, Katherine (Florence Pugh) is sold into marriage to a husband whose family owns a bleak, rural estate operating outside the sophistication of modern, progressive life. Trapped in a loveless marriage to a much older man, Katherine uses her position as Lady of the estate to begin a passionate affair with a man her own age, one that will have severe consequences for everyone involved. Brilliantly adapted from Nikolai Leskov’s novella Lady Macbeth of the Mtsensk, LADY MACBETH is William Oldroyd’s unforgettable new film, a masterpiece of ambition, unchecked power, and class domination that resonates deeply with contemporary life.
