Starring Sir Patrick Stewart as Macbeth and Kate Fleetwood as Lady Macbeth, Rupert Goold's immediate and visceral film is set in an undefined and threatening central European world. Shot on location in the mysterious underground labyrinth of Welbeck Abbey in Nottinghamshire, this is a contemporary presentation of Shakespeare's intense, claustrophobic and bloody drama. Recently honoured with a highly prestigious Peabody Award, the film is based on the Chichester Festival Theatre production of the play that enjoyed sell-out runs in the West End and on Broadway. Patrick Stewart won Best Actor and Rupert Goold Best Director in the Evening Standard Theatre Awards for the stage production and both Patrick Stewart and Kate Fleetwood were nominated for Tony Awards for their performance. Director of the critically-acclaimed play, ENRON, Rupert Goold has been described as 'the hottest, most exciting director around', and Macbeth is his debut as a film director. When the film was screened by the BBC December in 2010, the critics were unanimous in their enthusiastic praise. The DVD and Blu-ray also includes a commentary by director Rupert Goold and producer John Wyver in addition to interviews with Rupert Goold and cast members Patrick Stewart and Kate Fleetwood.

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.
The witches are particularly chilling-their invocation ritual is not for the squeamish!
I used this version to teach the play to a class of recalcitrant y9s, and it really gripped them- after the second lesson they were asking for more!
For school students this is a really good version which should engage them well. It is true to the text and excellent production. I have lent it to many of my students and it has gripped them and made the play very real and up to date for them.
