Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that Macbeth is brings Shakespeare's epic tale of betrayal and madness to life, with Michael Fassbender playing the lead role. Because the movie is faithful to the the Bard's original text, there's no foul language and little sexual content (a couple is shown kissing and presumably having sex, but nothing graphic is seen). But the violence is frequent and brutal. Battle/fight scenes are prolonged, gory, and painstaking; sometimes it feels unrelenting. Men, women, and children die in horrible ways (burning, beheading, stabbing, and more). Plus, mature themes like marital manipulation, mental illness, and corrupting power are all part of the cocktail.

Sexual Content

A couple is shown kissing and presumably having sex, though only their upper bodies (clothed) are in view.

Violence

Very violent and bloody, sometimes gory. Men are beheaded, women burned alive, children chased down and killed. Nobody is spared Macbeth's fury. Bloody corpses are shown, throats are slashed, chests are stabbed -- all of this sometimes in slow motion close-ups.

Language

Not applicable

Social Behavior

Your conscience will out, but if you live by the sword, you'll die by the sword. Revenge, betrayal, marital manipulation, mental illness, guilt, and corrupting power are themes.
