From acclaimed director Geoffrey Wright (Romper Stomper) comes this contemporary take on the Shakespeare classic. Set in the violent criminal underworld of Melbourne, Australia, the story follows Macbeth (Sam Worthington), a loyal henchman to his crime boss, Duncan. Macbeth is told he will one day assume great power and driven by this prophecy he plots with his wife to kill his boss and gain control of the organisation. But Macbeth knows that to maintain power he must remain ruthless, and with his remaining enemies uniting in a bid to destroy him, the end is bound to be bloody. Destined to do for the Scottish play what Baz Luhrmann did for Romeo and Juliet, Macbeth is a sexy, all action, guns blazing ride of awesome proportions!
