English Summary:

Lady Macbeth is a 2016 British drama film directed by William Oldroyd and written by Alice Birch, based on the novella Lady Macbeth of the Mtsensk District by Nikolai Leskov, though the film's ending deviates significantly from the source text. It stars Florence Pugh, Cosmo Jarvis, Paul Hilton, Naomi Ackie and Christopher Fairbank. The plot follows a young woman who is stifled by her loveless marriage to a bitter man twice her age.

In 1865, Katherine is in a loveless marriage to an older man, Alexander Lester. They live at the estate of Alexander's father, Boris, in rural England. Katherine is forced to maintain a strict schedule and prevented from leaving the house. Boris scolds her for not giving Alexander a son, but Alexander's sexual interest in his wife seems to be limited to watching her naked body. One day, both Boris and Alexander have to leave the estate for separate business matters, leaving Katherine alone with the housemaid, Anna. For the first time in memory, she is free to explore the area to alleviate her boredom.

Katherine discovers Anna being suspended from the ceiling of an outbuilding in a sheet by the men who work on the land. They say they are weighing a sow. Katherine has the woman released. She is attracted to one of the men, Sebastian, and the next day sets herself up to meet him. When Sebastian comes to the house to visit Katherine, they begin an affair. Anna informs the local priest, who attempts to warn Katherine, but she sends him away. When Boris returns home, he finds his favourite wine has run out. He accuses Anna of drinking it and tells her to get on the floor on all fours: if she behaves as animal she will be treated as an animal. Katherine says nothing. Boris is later informed of the affair, beats Sebastian and locks him in a stable. He strikes Katherine when she demands his release. Katherine then poisons his food, and calmly makes small talk with Anna as he chokes to death in the next room.


Hungarian Summary:

A vidéki Anglia, 1865. Az ifjú Katherine fuldoklik szerelem nélkül kötött házasságában, nála jóval korosabb, megkeseredett férje és annak rideg családja nyomása alatt. Amikor szenvedélyes viszonyt kezd férje birtokának egy szolgájával, olyan elementáris erő szabadul fel benne, hogy többé semmi nem állhat útjába. A Lady Macbeth egy gyönyörű, határozott és könyörtelen fiatal nő tragikus portréja, aki egy férfiak által dominált világban saját kezébe veszi a sorsát.
