“Out, out, brief candle! Life’s but a walking shadow, a poor player that struts and frets his hour upon the stage and is heard no more. It is a tale told by an idiot, full of sound and fury, signifying nothing.”

Even those who have been living under the rock will be able to tell you that this famous quote is from ‘The Tragedy of Macbeth’, the story of a Scottish nobleman’s quest to become king.

This glorious tragedy was once again altered by Joel Coen. The movie was proclaimed to hit the big screens in March 2019. The movie was released on September 24, 2021.

Instead of exhibiting the story of Macbeth and Lady Macbeth, Coen focused on showing the fans the after-effects of the catastrophe.

The tragedy is admired and appreciated by many across the globe and the cherry on top were the actors that were allotted to play the beloved roles. The director decided to enchant the audiences by casting veteran performers of Hollywood like Denzel Washington and Frances McDormand.

Although the story was highly popular, fans were in awe to see the actors who are in their 60’s playing the role of the two main protagonists who were said to be in their 30’s. Irrespective of their age, the actors had done a marvelous job in making these characters come to life on screen.

Washington’s Macbeth had many differences from the original plotline. Setting their age difference aside, this Macbeth was shown as a defeated man who had been tired of battles and he could be burdened by the battles he had once been part of. He is shown to be well aware of his deeds and his struggle between being gluttonous and vulnerable was beautifully captured on cameras.

Despite being bound by the time, the Oscar-winning actor had given his best performance and was successful in delivering an emotionally charged performance.

Along with Washington, the performance given by McDormand as Lady Macbeth is equally enchanting and mesmerizing. She had portrayed the character of the gluttonous wife with ease.

Even the supporting cast of the film was on point. Kathryn Hunter performed her role as the three witches that left the viewers spellbound. Artists like Alex Hassell, Corey Hawkins had made their characters proud.

All in all the performances throughout the series were beautifully done and it can be seen in the reviews. Rotten Tomatoes has given it the rating of 8.20/10.

The movie has also won the award of Top 10 Movies of the year on January 7, 2022, and has been nominated in various categories.

If you haven’t seen the movie, you should as the movie will not disappoint.
