Not another spin on 'The Scottish Play', this tense, darkly comic feature is an adaptation of a 19th century Russian novella, ‘Lady Macbeth of the Mtsensk District’ by Nikolai Leskov, the story now transported to 1865 rural England.

Katherine (Florence Pugh) is stifled by her loveless marriage to a bitter man twice her age, whose family are cold and unforgiving. 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.

The hypnotic Florence Pugh announces herself as an actress to watch with this fine performance, veering from endearing puckishness to dangerously disturbed.
