The best modern Macbeth ever!,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Macbeth [DVD] (DVD)
I'm not saying forget about other versions e.g. Polanski etc. but when it comes to a modern interpretation which the bard might have liked, this is the real McCoy. Haunting performances by Pat Stewart and Kate Fleetwod, a gripping storyline that gives enough room for the beautiful dialogues we've heard so often, breathtaking setting and effects. This is, as the Guardian put it, a superb film made from a superb production.
By the way...I watch this one with my English classes on regular basis before I read the play, and it has always done a great job making my pupils want to know more.
