Beautifully directed by William Oldroyd from a screenplay by noted playwright Alice Birch, Lady Macbeth sees teenage Katherine (Florence Pugh) sold into marriage to an older man, Alexander, and the household of his father, Boris (Christopher Fairbank).
Scorned by her husband, who quickly abandons his new bride, and with her daily routine one of crushing tedium under the hostile eye of her father-in-law, Katherine begins an illicit affair with arrogant groomsman Sebastian (Cosmo Jarvis), a relationship for which she will ultimately go to ever more extreme lengths. Pugh’s Katherine is an astonishing creation: the coy Victorian bride who, through frustration and boredom, finds strength and defiance, ultimately becoming murderous in order to preserve her freedom.
