Audio Description [AD] available

Directed by Joel Coen
Starring: Frances McDormand, Denzel Washington, Bertie Carvel, Brendan Gleeson, Kathryn Hunter

Denzel Washington and Frances McDormand star in Joel Coen’s bold and fierce adaptation; a tale of murder, ambition and wrathful cunning. 

Emotions rage unchecked and time is running out in this boldly cinematic adaptation of The Tragedy of Macbeth. Shakespeare’s thriller-prototype is stripped to its rawest psychological dimensions in this portrait of a powerful married couple who plunge into a last-chance crime with devastating consequences.

Content Guidance:

Infrequent strong violence


Frances McDormand and her co-star hit top form in Joel Coen’s austere reimagining of Shakespeare’s Scottish bloodbath.
These thoroughly established sexagenarians bring the energy of a young Orson Welles to Shakespeare’s Scottish play, creating an almost horror-film take on all the power, ambition and violence.
A nightmare you won’t want to wake up from
