Synopsis

Trapped in a loveless marriage of convenience, a headstrong young woman decides to create her own destiny...
Rural England, 1865. Katherine (Florence Pugh) is stifled by her loveless marriage to a bitter man twice her age, whose family is cold and unforgiving. When she embarks on a passionate affair with a young worker on her husband’s estate, a force is unleashed inside her, so powerful that she will stop at nothing to get what she wants.
A unique period drama adapted from Nikolai Leskov’s 1865 Russian novella 'Lady Macbeth of the Mtsensk District'.
