Director of Lady Macbeth

William Oldroyd discusses his film Lady Macbeth with SIFFcast host Jeremy Cropf.

On the newest episode of SIFFcast, Jeremy chats with director William Oldroyd about his debut feature Lady Macbeth. Based not on Shakespeare, but on a classic Russian novel, this Gothic tale takes place in rural England, where a young woman (Florence Pugh) is stifled by her loveless marriage to a bitter old man. Williams shares his thoughts on balancing tone, the differences between directing for stage and screen, and how he found his leading lady.
