The Lady’s In Love With You (Film Thoughts: Lady Macbeth)

f2682c1a30a95dd67c3d32de5c0e56deSet in 1800s countryside of England, ‘Lady Macbeth’ starts out unassuming, but based on the tone, you can sense there is somebody foreboding. There’s horror in the film, and there’ suspense, and in the end there’s a ghost looming.

Florence Pugh is a revelation as Kathrine who is bought as a wife parceled with some land (was she bought with the land, or was the land bought with her?)  But once she is inside the house, you know there is more behind the seemingly innocent lass. She powers through the house and asserts herself. And there’s a whole lot more.

To tell you more would be a betrayal to the film. Needless to say, the film goes on different journeys that will infuriate you.  Some parts of it you will not bear to see. This is the kind of film that will assault your sense. However you will feel about it, I assure you that you will not feel bored. This film is one of my favorites so far this year, and I am positive Pugh will emerge as the name to hear during Awards Season.
