The Rehoboth Beach Film Society will present the feature film adaptation of the Shakespearean tragedy, MACBETH on Tuesday, September 13, 2:00 pm at Cinema Art Theater, 17701 Dartmouth Drive, Dartmouth Plaza, Lewes (behind the Wawa). Doors open at 1:30 pm. This screening is part of the Lewes Public Library Shakespeare Festival.
From the Academy Award® winning producers Iain Canning and Emile Sherman of “The King’s Speech” and acclaimed Australian director Justin Kurzel comes a visually breathtaking interpretation of the Shakespearean classic, Macbeth. Set in a war torn landscape of craggy highlands and gray skies, this is a gritty tale of a ruthless Scottish lord (Michael Fassbender) who seizes the throne with the help of his ambitious wife (Marion Cotillard). Said to be one of the greatest adaptations of the famed Scottish play, scenes that are only described in speeches on stage are brought to life in the film. Faithful to the source material yet not lacking in drama, OSCAR® winners Michael Fassbender and Marion Cotillard make this mesmerizing rendition an epic experience.
Michael O’Sullivan of “The Washington Post” says, “This cinematic MACBETH possesses a terrible beauty, evoking fear, sadness, awe and confusion. Presented with the aesthetic of a dark comic book, it’s also a mournful masterpiece, rendering Shakespeare’s spectacle with all the sorrow and majesty that it deserves.” [2015, UK, Runtime: 113 minutes, Rated R]
