Joel Coen—the Coen Brothers, less one brother— directs a stunning, black and white version of Shakespeare’s great tragedy, built around the magnificent central performances of Denzel Washington and Frances McDormand. "Shot in a resonating black and white, with, possibly, the two greatest actors of their generation working through a poetic vocabulary that forms the very basis of them as performers, this is the kind of visionary art that happens when a group of artists, at the top of their game, assemble to work on a legacy that’s near to their hearts because of the challenge, not in spite of it. Denzel and McDormand are fearless, and THE TRAGEDY OF MACBETH is an enthralling jolt of verse and just good old-fashioned dread"—The Playlist

Scheduled to start New Year's Day
