William Shakespeare Macbeth Movie Review

William Shakespeare tragedy play Macbeth comes to the big screen starring Michael Fassbender as Macbeth and Marion Cotillard as Lady Macbeth. This is not the first time that this Scottish play has been screened but definitely the first one to compete for the Palme D’or at the 2015 Cannes Film Festival. The story is about a ruthlessly ambitious Scottish lord who does the impossible to get the throne with the help of his cold hearted wife after 3 witches forecasted his future. Shakespearean fans will find their bliss as there is an emphasis on poetic verses that are beautifully expressed by Marion and Michael. They perfectly portrayed their desperation to gain power and the consequences that they will face once they are in charge.
