Rural England, 1865. Katherine (Florence Pugh) is stifled by her loveless marriage to a bitter man twice her age, whose family are cold and unforgiving. When she embarks on a passionate affair with a young worker on her husband’s estate, a force is unleashed inside her, so powerful that she will stop at nothing to get what she wants.
Lady Macbeth is a tragic portrait of a beautiful, determined and merciless young woman seizing her independence in a world dominated by men.
Cast includes Florence Pugh (The Falling), Cosmo Jarvis (Mi-5), Naomi Ackie (Dr. Who), Paul Hilton (Wuthering Heights) and Christopher Fairbank (Guardians of the Galaxy).
