Macbeth

Posted on: February 14, 2006 | Views: 620 | Comment

Returning from battle, Macbeth and Banquo come upon three witches in the forest. They prophesy that Macbeth will ascend to the throne and Banquo will father a line of Kings. At the behest of his wife, Macbeth kills the king. With no remaining heir, Macbeth is named King. His next course of action is to eliminate Banquo and his son Fleance, but his assassins allow Fleance to escape. Macbeth is then visited by Banquo's ghost at a banquet. Macbeth flees into the woods and consults the witches again. They tell him to strike at Macduff. So he has Lady Macduff killed. Macduff survives and raises an army. Meanwhile, Lady Macbeth's guilt has driven her to suicide. A servant discovers her body and tries to warn Macbeth but he won't listen. He confronts Macduff and his army, easily wading through the camouflaged soldiers. The final battle with Macduff is savage and brief, with Macbeth gaining the upper hand until he sees the corpse of Lady Macbeth. Distracted, he fails to see Macduff strike at him from behind. Macbeth falls and Macduff delivers the killing blow. This is a silent condensation of Shakespeare's classic play, dark, brooding, and fast.
