Editorial Reviews

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.

If you find yourself in a Shakespeare course and bored by watching poorly produced plays, then watch this instead. Like anything Shakespearean, you should have some kind of knowledge about what's going to happen before you read or view a movie adaptation. The same applies here.

This movie is entertaining to say the least and represents the characters in a much more modern and relate-able way.

If you are a lover of Shakespeare then you will love this movie. It not only keeps the dialog intact, but it put a morbid spin on the timeless tale. Also the acting is marvelous and the imagery eerie and haunting. (The witches are amazing.)

Tried this on 3 different BluRay players, including a recently purchased Playstation 3, with the same result.
No Region Code was shown on box, the inside information, the disc itself, or Amazon's description of the product.

Very disappointed -- we were looking forward to watching this highly acclaimed performance.

Oops. After reviewing this review I noticed Amazon HAD included a description of the product -- it was "below the fold" of the original description and I missed it.

Made me rethink MacBeth and Shakespeare's great gift of delivering yet other renditions of man's myths! The actors in this show aren't too shabby either!

This is a review of the blu ray disc, not of the performance. The blu ray will not play on my Denon player. I get sound but no picture. If I push pause, I see the picture for a second, but then it vanishes. Amazon replaced the first disc, but the one they sent behaved exactly like the first. I contacted Denon; they were unaware of any problem with the player. No firmware update was available.

I notice someone else who reviewed this disc had the same problem. But the other reviewers on this page seem to have gotten the disc to work in their players. I'm told that problems like this are due to the copy protections the manufacturers put on their discs. I wish they would stop.

I've ordered the DVD.
