Macbeth, a Thane of Scotland, receives a prophecy from a trio of witches that one day he will become King of Scotland. Consumed by ambition and spurred to action by his wife, Macbeth murders his king and takes the throne for himself. —IMDB
The cinematography and costumes are the best part of this movie. Marion Cotillard as Macbeth’s queen is quite weak. Michael Fassbender, as Macbeth, is good and holds the movie together. While the movie has been updated as far as technical aspects goes, the Shakespearean language would be inaccessible to most modern viewers, in my view. I think this movie will be of most interest to seasoned Shakespeare lovers.
