Macbeth: Act 5 Scene 1

Comparing Polanski's version and Goold's version

comparing movie and text

Both movies have differences than the original text. Overall, Polanski's version seemed to be more accurate in relatance to the original play. I belive that Polanski's version was better because it had a better description of how the play actually was.

Similarities and Differences

One similarity between the 2 versions was the fact that both scenes had dark lighting and dark eerie mood during the scenes. One difference is that in Goold's version, the scene took place in some sort of undrground/basement setting. Polanski's version seems to be in Lady Macbeth's bedroom as the book described.
