Macbeth was meant to be exciting. It was meant to entertain. Let me rephrase those statements: Macbeth IS meant to be exciting. It IS meant to entertain. While there are many layers and complexities to the play, it still remains powerful and entertaining, and ruthlessly appealing. Macbeth was not meant for the scholar; it was meant for the casual play goer, the casual reader, the casual movie watcher.
Too often, scholars and directors get caught up in the complexities and lose that main goal of entertainment. When William Shakespeare was alive and writing, he was the equivalent to Steven Spielberg – a provider of entertainment. Sometimes that entertainment is more layered and complex. Other times it is pure pleasure and fun.
We even have a companion top selling study guide to go along with the movie! Study Guide Available in Paperback or Kindle on Amazon.
This feature film will be part of our Literature Matters series, MACBETH: THE RED KING, a unique re-telling of the classic play mixing the Shakespearean tragedy with a bit of real-world history and a focus on being able to be used as a classroom teaching tool as well as having a theatrical sensibilities for watching in theaters as well as VOD outlets such as Netflix and Amazon and Premium networks such as Showtime and HBO.
