Macbeth Act 5 scene 1

1971, Roman Polanski VS 2010, Rupert Goold

1971 vs 2010

After reading and watching multiple videos of Macbeth, I believe that there are more similarities than differences. I believe that version 1 1971, Roman Polanski and version 2 2010, Rupert Gould are very much alike in there illustrations of how Lady Macbeth is feeling after the murder.

In conclusion version 1-Polanski was more closely like the text in its setting, lighting and overall tone. It was a more enjoyable depiction of Macbeth than version 2-Gould. Gould was more modern day dramatics and less entertaining. I feel that when your props are more closely to the reading of a story your audience’s attention is captured and it’s easier to follow.
