Genre: Drama, War
This is a really good adaption of Shakespeare’s Macbeth! Michael Fassbender and Marion Cotillard were simply extraordinary 😀 . I liked that this adaption decided to make it seem more like the 11th century than trying to fit Shakespeare into a modern world (like many other adaptations I have seen previously 😛 ). The scenery, costumes, the filming style and overall look of the film was quite impressive. The dagger scene, Lady Macbeth’s “clean hands” speech and what happens to the Macbeths in the end were brilliant and are my favourite scenes 🙂 . Unfortunately, it is a little long and if you are not a great Shakespeare fan then some of the lingo might get you slightly bored. However, I think the speeches ran smoothly, the acting was superb and some versions (their take on it) of the classic scenes were refreshing to see. Also most importantly the madness is believable!! This is truly a good Macbeth 😀 ! Enjoy 🙂 !
I give this film 4 Stars out of 5!
