Every few years, we get a resurgence of Shakespeare in the movies. The most recent entry into the fray was Joss Whedon’s Much Ado About Nothing. That was a great movie, but it was set in a more modern setting. This new version of Macbeth is a more traditional version of Shakespeare, plus it stars Michael Fassbender and Marion Cotilliard
MACBETH is the story of a fearless warrior and inspiring leader (Michael Fassbender) brought low by ambition and desire. A thrilling interpretation of the dramatic realities of the times and a reimagining of what wartime must have been like for one of Shakespeare’s most famous and compelling characters, a story of all-consuming passion and ambition, set in war torn Scottish landscape.
