Lady Macbeth

by William Oldroyd International Feature Film / Competition

The rural north of England, the year is 1865. Stifled in an arranged and loveless marriage with Alexander, a man more than twice her age, 17-year-old Catherine spends her days with her maid, Anna, in a stuffy room of a large country house, in almost complete isolation. When her husband leaves for business one day, Catherine takes her first steps towards freedom. While walking through the stunningly beautiful countryside of the estate, she meets the young worker Sebastian, with whom she begins a passionate affair. This is soon met with great scepticism by outsiders. However, a fire has been ignited within Catherine, and nothing will stop her getting what she wants – even if the outcome will be bloody… LADY MACBETH is the dramatic story of a passionate and unscrupulous woman whose newfound happiness seems immediately elusive. William Oldroyd’s precisely staged feature film debut is immensely appealing.
