"The words belong to Mr. Shakespeare. All else is the pleasurably fevered invention of brash Australian director Geoffrey Wright..." -- Grade: B+
New York Times - 07/06/2007
"While Mr. Wright's movie goes to great, often inventive lengths to tell the tale visually, it dutifully preserves great swaths of the playwright's verse..."
With his fourth film, Australian director Geoffrey Wright attempts to contemporize a Shakespeare classic. Featuring Elizabethan dialogue in the midst of an urban and violent modern-day setting, MACBETH stars Sam Worthington as the title character.
