Cast: Jon Finch, Francesca Annis, Martin Shaw

1971 \ UK \140 min \ In English \ Rating: tbc


Roman Polanski presents his nightmarish vision of Shakespeare's classic tragedy about the lust for power-and its bloody  consequences. Jon Finch is Macbeth, the Scottish war hero whose insane ambition unleashes a cycle of violence. Prompted by the supernatural prophecy of three witches, Macbeth is goaded by his Lady (Francesca Annis) into slaying King Duncan and assuming his throne. Filmed in rugged North Wales, Polanski used this landscape to accentuate the visual elements of Shakespeare’s play.
