The Week’s Books on Screen

Macbeth_2015_posterDebuting in theaters today is a new version of Macbeth, with Michael Fassbender as Shakespeare’s troubled king and Marion Cotillard (Inception) as his wife, Lady Macbeth. The Guardian calls a “noir-thriller soaked with operatic verve.”  People magazine lists it as a pick of the week, “this gruntingly powerful version tells the tale with… coiled fury.” Entertainment Weekly lauds Fassbender’s acting, but ultimately gives it a B grade, because “the rest of the movie isn’t nearly as interested in playing as many nuanced notes as its star.”

There is no specific tie-in edition (image above is of the poster).

A tie-in edition came out in October, The Bridge by Karen Kingsbury (S&S/Howard Books; S&S Audio; OverDrive Sample).
