The Tragedy of Macbeth - Criterion Collection
The Tragedy of Macbeth - Criterion Collection
  • Description

    Roman Polanski imbues his unflinchingly violent adaptation of William Shakespeare’s tragedy of ruthless ambition and murder in medieval Scotland with grit and dramatic intensity. Jon Finch and Francesca Annis give performances charged with fury and sex appeal as a decorated warrior rising through the ranks and his driven wife, scheming together to take the throne by any means. Co-adapted by Polanski and the great theatre critic and dramaturge Kenneth Tynan, and shot against a series of stunning, stark British Isle landscapes, this version of Macbeth is among the most atmospheric and authentic of all Shakespeare films.

    Special Features:

    • New 4K digital restoration, approved by director Roman Polanski, with 3.0 surround DTS-HD Master Audio soundtrack
    • Toil and Trouble: Making “Macbeth” – a new documentary featuring interviews with Polanski, producer Andrew Braunsberg, assistant executive producer Victor Lownes, and actors Francesca Annis and Martin Shaw
    • Polanski Meets Macbeth – a 1971 documentary by Frank Simon featuring rare footage of the film’s cast and crew at work
    • Interview with co-screenwriter Kenneth Tynan from a 1971 episode of The Dick Cavett Show
