Hywel John in Macbeth


2010 TV-14

Maintaining the gripping tone of director Rupert Goold's acclaimed stage adaptation, this modernized version of the Shakespearean tragedy stars Patrick Stewart and Kate Fleetwood as the ambitious couple driven to madness with paranoia. This conceptual interpretation of the Bard's play transposes the Scottish setting to a 20th-century militaristic society, and features potent performances by Stewart and Fleetwood as the doomed king and queen.
