For all the major league blockbusters being released this year there are also a plethora of impressive and tantalising films that could easily fall under the radar within the season of the big budget studio movies that often dominate the multiplexes. Thankfully, we’re as much tuned into these films as any others – especially if you check out our latest feature highlighting our most anticipated ‘non-blockbusters’ – and one such film is Lady Macbeth.
A film that has already been described as immensely seductive and featuring a scintillating performance from lead actress Florence Pugh, Lady Macbeth is one of the films on the 2017 calendar that we simply cannot wait for. Following the daring and magnetic trailer, Altitude Film Distribution have unveiled the official poster for the film highlighting the brilliant Pugh in her mysterious glory.
Featuring a whole host of impressive views from industry professionals, you can view the new poster below.
Rural England, 1865. Katherine (Florence Pugh) is stifled by her loveless marriage to a bitter man twice her age, and his cold, unforgiving family. 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.
The film is loosely based on a nineteenth century novella called Lady Macbeth of Mtsensk District by Nikolai Leskov and was later adapted as an Opera. Lady Macbeth is a tragic portrait of a beautiful, determined and merciless young woman seizing her independence in a world dominated by men.
Lady Macbeth is released on 28th April.
