Adapted from the 1865 novella by Russian author Nikolai Leskov, Lady Macbeth is the debut feature from renowned theatre director William Oldroyd & first-time screenwriter Alice Birch. Relocating the drama to the north-east of England, the film is a grisly & provocative tale of lust, intrigue & murder. BAFTA Breakthrough Brit Florence Pugh puts in an electrifying performance as Katherine; an abused teenage wife who embarks on an increasingly disturbing rebellion against a cold husband & a vindictive society. Suffice to say, the film has left many critics stunned (with FIVE STAR review from both Peter Bradshaw in The Guardian & Tim Robey in The Telegraph)!


Much of the praise has been devoted to the rich soundscape & haunting visuals, so special congratulations are due to Sara Putt Associates’ very own Steve Peckover (Sound Recordist) & Sian Wilson (Hair & Make-Up Designer).


Lady Macbeth is in UK cinemas now!
