Alice Birch has relocated the Russian story from 19th-century in the coming year in the movie of director William Oldroyd (by the way acclaimed in a theatre). When does Lady Macbeth come out? A brilliant maker of films is born, but you need to think in advance: do you really want to become not relaxing but more stifling?
- The original story was written in Russian by Nikolai Leskov and contains all shades of feelings of different characters.
- You can easily read “Lady Macbeth of the Mtsensk” (which was the material for Shostakovich’s opera of the same name) in English and compare how the story depicted in the film with the dark twists of the thrilling narrative, and what parts of the story are missing.
This Brittish movie is about Victorian England. Leskov’s story begins in the merchant’s Izmailov house, home to his wife, Katherine L., and a middle-aged husband, Zinovy Borisovich, and father in-law Boris Timofeevich. Katerina Lvovna has no children and lives with her husband, who got bored so soon. During a business trip, departure of spouse’s wife starts a love affair with an employee Sergey. In-law Boris Timofeevich notes it and Katerina poisons him with rat powder.
After some time the husband returns home and starts to accuse his wife of infidelity. Katerina promises her lover to make him merchant, and together with him kills the husband, a wealthy merchant. They hide the body in the cellar and begin to live together openly, without hiding from anyone, as long as the people are looking for a missing Zinovy Borisovich. But their quiet life comes to an end with the arrival of the nephew of the deceased, Fedor Lyapin, who settled in their home and lives on the money of the deceased uncle.
Katerina and Sergey decide to kill the infant Fedor and they strangled by a pillow in his bedroom. Once the body of the murdered innocent boy falls to the floor, the house starts to shake from the strange sounds. Sergey thinks it is God’s punishment, he see the faces of people killed by them. Katherine realizes that angry people that saw in the gap a terrible murder, and they want to break into the house.
Sergey immediately confesses in his sins to the priest, not like Katherine. The punishment was in the form of beatings with whips and hard labor. All this time, Katherine thinks only about her meetings with Sergey, who at this time found a replacement in two women.
Katherine is doing everything in order to return the affection the beloved, but Sergey only uses it and in front of Sonetka with friends beating his ex-wife. Notwithstanding such an attitude to him, Katherine L. during the crossing of their party ferry to the other side of the river, clutches the legs of Sonetka, and burn with it overboard, where they both go to the bottom and drown.
We will not tell you the end of the story in the original novel. The movie Lady Macbeth trailer also does not show the end. Be ready and opened to flexible thinking; it is not easy to determine the moral compass of the story.

There is the last question, which remains. We need to remember exactly when in 2017 this Gothic tale will be released. When is Lady Macbeth 2017 coming to theaters? The official date was announced as June 2 this year.
This will be almost 90 minutes long the heroine has become a part of successful deal: the acquisition land and young wife by elderly merchant. But she cannot fall in love with her respected successful husband, simply because he is not at home so often. Her story about the struggle against the social mores, the marriage of convenience and even more than revolt to preserve her dominance. That said, she has a deliciously amoral darkness. Gender issues are always relevant, and now we should think about this in a new way. How far and in what direction does liberation from the rules lead us to?
During the hot June impressive debut will bring grim coolness. On the Lady Macbeth 2017 movie release date that vivid blue dress, becomes symbol of her liberated spirit, refreshes our perception, as well as on the Toronto Film Festival in 2016.
