WITH MARK ROWLEY Macbeth aired in UK cinemas in MarchMACBETH entirely shot on green screen and reinvented by director Kit Monkman starring The Last Kingdom’s Mark Rowley! Monkman’s unique adaptation successfully bridges the gap between theatre and film by exploiting the capabilities of the green screen to portray the vast world of make-believe while maintaining the traditional values, language and themes of Shakespeare’s original theatrical play.
Brilliant young general MACBETH pulls off a glorious victory in battle before returning to an indolent court where honours are dispensed by whim. Spurred on by prophesying drifters and an ambitious wife, MACBETH sets his sights on the throne. In Kit Monkman’s adventurous new adaptation, this compelling tale of unchecked ambition, soured friendship, lost intimacy and the descent into nihilismis encountered in a strange and claustrophobic territory partly conjured by the mind. The movie is currently available to stream and download on Amazon.
