Abstract

A 150-minite film version directed by Rupert Goold of his highly-acclaimed production with Patrick Stewart as Macbeth and Kate Fleetwood as Lady Macbeth. Originally staged by Chichester Festival Theatre, the production was a sell-out hit in the West End and on Broadway. Shot on location in the mysterious underground world of Welbeck Abbey in Nottinghamshire, the film is set in an undefined and threatening central European world. Immediate and visceral, this is a contemporary presentation of Shakespeare’s intense, claustrophobic and bloody drama. The film extends John Wyver's engagement, begun with Hamlet (2009) with ways of producing stage productions for the screen, creating a film language that respects the work's origins but achieves a dynamic and accessible screen form.
