Macbeth (MA15+)

Steeped in treachery, magic and bloody revenge, Shakespeare’s Macbeth tells the tale of a couple who are beset by grief and driven to madness in their pursuit of power. Michael Fassbender and Marion Cotillard lead an impressive cast in Australian director and VCA graduate Justin Kurzel’s ambitious and visually spectacular update of the Shakespearian classic.

This season is presented in association with the University of Melbourne as part of the Shakespeare 400 Melbourne program.

On Sunday 24 July the film will be introduced by Dr David McInnis, University of Melbourne.

There will be a post screening Skype Q&A with Macbeth Director Justin Kurzel (VCA alumni) on Saturday 16 July. He will be speaking to us from London where he is currently in post production on his upcoming film.
