Critic Reviews of "Lady Macbeth"Time OutApril 25, 2017
This brilliantly feminist British indie film plunges a cold, sharp knife into the back of bonnet dramas.indieWireNovember 21, 2016
"Lady Macbeth" reveals the essence of its plot in the title, but the dark twists of the thrilling narrative still manage to surprise.VarietySeptember 09, 2016
Florence Pugh announces herself as a major talent to watch in William Oldroyd's impressively tough-minded Victorian tragedy.Hollywood ReporterSeptember 09, 2016
Lady Macbeth mostly operates within established period conventions, but draws fresh blood from antique material thanks to a sparky cast, subtle nods to contemporary race and gender issues, and a hefty shot of gothic melodrama.FILMINK (Australia)June 12, 2017
...the whole adds up to rather less than the sum of its parts.PopMattersMay 05, 2017
A film of genuine force, it strikes you in the gut with a clenched fist, simultaneously seduced by its beauty while recoiling at the moral abyss.Contactmusic.comMay 05, 2017
Insinuating and bold, the film quickly worms its way under the skin, unnerving us to the core with its shocking story, clever camerawork and razor-sharp acting.The Big IssueMay 05, 2017
Lady Macbeth is a deftly assured cinematic debut from theatre director William Oldroyd: a film of unnerving, accumulating tension, punctuated by moments of violence that leave you reeling.Sunday Independent (Ireland)May 01, 2017
There are lots of moral issues raised: control vs freedom, freedom vs power, the crossing of moral boundaries and the notion that lust in women is akin to evil. I really liked it.Sunday Times (UK)May 01, 2017
Sometimes a glorious film appears like a cold dart out of an open sky.Daily Express (UK)April 30, 2017
Directed with spare intensity by William Oldroyd, it's a picture as icily controlled as its heroine is wild and unpredictable.Observer (UK)April 30, 2017
This may be a low-budget affair (reportedly less than 500,000), but it's as richly textured as any more expensive period piece.
