Fifth about The Seventh

Lady Macbeth

Lady Macbeth: William Oldroyd’s small drama has a star turn in Florence Pugh’s performance, even if she plays a character that turns out to be what the title suggests; it is, at least, an interesting character, even if the way both the story unfurls and she develops are unpleasant. Her acting is quietly expressive; Naomi Ackie is effective in her role, but the same can’t be said about Cosmo Jarvis, sadly. The film has a very bare look; Thalia Ecclestone’s art direction is minimalistic (as what the story and the setting call for), and Ari Wegner’s cinematography is indifferent. All in all, a cold filmic experience.
