Salisbury Film Society Presents 'Macbeth' Sunday, November 6
SALISBURY, MD—The Salisbury Film Society (SFS) presents William Shakespeare’s Macbeth 2:30 p.m. Sunday, November 6, in Fulton Hall 111.
Directed by Justin Kurtzel, this dramatic film adaptation features a stellar casting of Michael Fassbinder as Macbeth and Marion Cotillard as Lady Macbeth. After hearing a prophecy that he will become the king of Scotland, Macbeth and his power-hungry wife become fixated on taking the throne and decides to murder the current king to do so.
Michael O’Sullivan of the Washington Post said the film “possesses a terrible beauty, evoking fear, sadness, awe and confusion. Presented with the aesthetic of a dark comic book, it’s also a mournful masterpiece.”
Dr. Elsie Walker of SU’s English department leads a group discussion following the screening.
The SFS series is co-sponsored by the Salisbury Wicomico Arts Council (SWAC) and SU’s Charles R. and Martha N. Fulton School of Liberal Arts.
Tickets are $9, $8 for SWAC members, free for college and university students with ID. For more information call 410-543-ARTS (2787) or visit the SWAC website at www.543arts.org.
