Now this is the kind of film Hollywood needs to be making more of. It’s got passion, danger, a good hook and, a brilliant female lead.
Lady Macbeth has been earning some solid reviews lately, and watching the trailer it’s very easy to see why. The film follows a young woman named Katherine (Florence Pugh), who is trapped in a loveless marriage with a much older man. She soon starts an affair with a man her age (Cosmo Jarvis).
Pugh is relatively new to the industry but has previously featured in The Falling and Marcella. However, based on the strength of her performance and the rave reviews, it would come as no surprise if we started seeing the English actor popping up more and more. Hollywood better take notice.
Lady Macbeth will be released on June 2, 2017.
