Lady Macbeth Trailer

"A seductive mix of sex and murder." Roadside Attractions has unveiled a trailer for the film Lady Macbeth, an adaptation of Nikolai Leskov's novella "Lady Macbeth of the Mtsensk". This classic period piece thriller is set during the 19th century, and involves a young woman being sold into a marriage with a middle-aged man that abuses her, so she figures out a way to get rid of him. Florence Pugh plays Katherine, and the cast includes Christopher Fairbank, Cosmo Jarvis, Bill Fellows, Paul Hilton, Naomi Ackie, and Ian Conningham. This already premiered at film festivals earlier this fall, and is also playing at the Sundance Film Festival coming up in January. Not really my kind of film, but might be interesting to some. See below.

Here's the official US trailer for William Oldroyd's Lady Macbeth, originally from Yahoo:

Lady Macbeth

In this adaptation of Nikolai Leskov's novella "Lady Macbeth of the Mtsensk", a 19th century young bride is sold into marriage to a middle-aged man. More from Yahoo: "Before long, an affair with one of her spouse’s employees ignites a passion inside her — and as one might expect from a tale whose title directly alludes to Shakespeare's infamous character, she's soon driven to plot a murder." Lady Macbeth is directed by filmmaker William Oldroyd, making his feature directorial debut after a few short films previously. The screenplay is written by Alice Birch, based on the novel by Nikolai Leskov. The film premiered at the Toronto Film Festival this year, and is set to play at the 2017 Sundance Film Festival in January. Roadside Attractions will then release Lady Macbeth in select theaters starting June 2nd, 2017 next year. Anyone?

    This looks good. I love to see it adapted to all kind of cultures around the same era. Japan, Russia, Spain, etc.

      Bad David, bad David ... Those cultures have all the good girls and you want them to be like this one? Count me in ...

    Ok, that looks good and intense in a right sense of a word. What would Jane Austen say about it?

    For some reason the gentleman in the field reminds me of Bam Margera.
