Synopsis

Director: William Oldroyd. Starring: Florence Pugh, Cosmo Jarvis, Paul Hilton. UK 2016. 89 mins. Acclaimed theatre director William Oldroyd makes a seamless transition to the screen in this brilliant Gothic tale of a young bride trapped in a marriage of convenience on a rural estate who embarks on a passionate affair. Florence Pugh (last seen in Carol Morley’s The Falling) is stunning as Lady Katherine, a woman determined to turn everything upside down in her mission to reclaim control over her life. Based on Lady Macbeth Of The Mtensk District, the 1865 novel by Nikolai Leskov, which inspired Shostakovich’s opera of the same name, this beautiful and highly assured debut, set amid the wild moorland of Northumberland, is a wonderful and strange story of love and betrayal.
