Australian film-maker Justin Kurzel has likened his dark new adaptation of Shakespeare’s Macbeth to a Western.
The drama stars Fossa man Michael Fassbender in the title role alongside Marion Cotillard – and portrays the Scottish warrior as a sufferer of post-traumatic stress disorder.
The movie premiered to rave reviews at the Cannes Film Festival and is released next month.
Michael says they wanted to be truthful to the text.
