This exceptional debut by British director William Oldroyd takes Nikolai Leskov’s strange tale of love and betrayal, Lady Macbeth of Mtsensk District, and places it in nineteenth century rural England.
With masterful storytelling, it follows young, defiant bride Katherine as she struggles against suffocating societal norms and a loveless marriage to a much older man.
But when she embarks on a passionate affair with a young worker on their estate, a new force is unleashed inside her; so powerful that she will stop at nothing to get what she wants.
★★★★★ ‘A brilliantly chilling subversion of a classic’
‘A seductive mix of sex and murder’
