The Tragedy of Macbeth
Downfall of Macbeth
Rosamund Pike playing the role of Amy Dunne seemed to resemble Lady Macbeth in some ways. For she was manipulative, and ended up ruining Nick Dunne(played by Ben Affleck)'s life. The movie "Gone Girl" resembles Macbeth because when Nick and Amy first started to date everything seemed amazing, until Amy faked her own murder which made it seem to be committed by her husband. When doing so people began to turn on him and prosecute him for unreasonable acts that he did not commit. As the film progressed it showed how far Amy Dunne went to keep herself hidden by forming a new identity, paying only in cash, and moving around a lot. Later in the film Amy decided it would be best to go find her old boyfriend but after she realized that he wasn't all that great she made it seem as if he had kidnapped her, raped her, and physically abused her. Soon after she murdered him. After calling the police stating that she murdered him in "Self Defense" was returned home and soon confessed to her husband Nick what actually happened which made him want to divorce. Yet again, she lied, but this time she told Nick that she was pregnant so that he would no leave her. All in all Lady Macbeth related to Amy Dunne because as Lady Macbeth was manipulative and ruined Macbeth's life as Amy ruined Nick's.

A humble man whose honored me with names.
I do not feel I have the right or will,
Besides desire for the crown and fame.
A trusted king of Scotland, Duncan is,
And he believes my loyalty is firm.
No pity would be mine, but only his
No loyalty in this act I’d confirm.
I do already what a man should do;
Although, my lady pushes me ahead.
But with this type of act, I shan't go through.
I’ll tell my love that no blood shall be shed.
Although my goal is to be the new king,
I feel that killing Duncan’s the wrong thing.
