Intro and Q&A with director William Oldroyd on Friday, July 28 at 7pm!
Acclaimed UK stage director William Oldroyd makes his cinematic debut with this striking adaptation of Nikolai Leskov's famous play Lady Macbeth of the Mtsensk District, relocated to Victorian England. Trapped in a marriage to a much older man and marooned on an estate amidst the bleak northern heaths, Lady Katherine (Florence Pugh) paces her constrictive world like a wild animal looking for escape. She soon finds an outlet for her stifled desires in an affair with a young groom — but the couple's passion could prove to be their undoing.
Following the 1:00pm screening of Lady Macbeth on July 29, we're delighted to present an opportunity for audience members to continue the conversation. Docent volunteers will facilitate an engaging film talk on a variety of aspects of the film. We encourage you to stay after the screening and participate in this intimate and lively discussion. We will be offering tea and coffee refreshments.
