Macbeth (2015) Fassbender, Cotillard – Movie Review

Michael Fassbender stars as Macbeth, who is foretold by three sisters of mystical powers that he will one day be the king in Scotland. Lady Macbeth, a firm believer in the prophecy, convinces her husband, who is a heartbeat away from ascending to the throne, to murder Scottish King Duncan and become the leader of the land. However, once that threshold to murder has been breached, it becomes a toxic force in the lives of the new king and queen, as Macbeth finds himself all-too-willing to snuff out more, trying to find a sense of peace and tranquility that continues to elude him with each life extinguished.
