The Torch Theatre welcomes Lady Macbeth (15) with two showings on Sunday, 25 June and Tuesday, 27 June with a subtitled version on Monday, 26.
“Rising British star Florence Pugh electrifies as a teenage bride stuck in a suffocating marriage in William Oldroyd’s heady feature debut”
There’s been a great expectation for this film, directed by William Oldroyd, with The Observer and Evening Standard having identified William as a director to watch in the future. It’s rural England in 1865. Katherine (Florence Pugh) is stifled by her loveless marriage to a bitter man twice her age, whose family are cold and unforgiving. When she gets a taste of freedom, she stops being a housewife and becomes ‘Lady Macbeth’. She’s trapped in a life she never wanted with a cruel man and his 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.
Starring Florence Pugh as the titular ‘Lady Macbeth’, this is a portrait of a beautiful but merciless woman determined to seize her independence in a world dominated by men.
Pugh’s debut performance was in the mystery drama The Falling (2014). For her role as a precocious teenager in the film, she was nominated for Best British Newcomer at the 2014 BFI London Film Festival. She was also nominated for Best Young British/Irish performer at The London Film Critics’ Circle Awards.
