  • I’m a Fan of Macbeth but so far only tepidly enjoying AppleTV+. I believe(??) this is an Apple Studio production (the first?) and this one I’m enthusiastic to see/watch it in January.
    For a modern audience, I hope the vernacular isn’t true to Shakespeare’s play. The very old English will be too difficult for modern day watchers. On the other hand, the trailer shows it keeps the cold creepy, and the general Scottish, feel to the scenery and background.
    The eventual madness of Macbeth and the initial driving scheming of Lady Macbeth just can’t (shouldn’t) be changed. But we’ll see…
