Act 1 Scene 1

2006 Geoffrey Wright. 2010 Rupert Goold.

Comparison to the Play

Although there were many differences from the play Macbeth and the two film versions, there was a big similarity. The overall tone and mood of all of the versions was the same. Both versions of the film and the play were extremely creepy. The witches were disturbing and creepy. For example, in the 2006 Geoffrey Wright version the witches were running around a graveyard breaking statues. The 2010 Rupert Goold version was even more disturbing, showing a witch rip a mans heart out. The Rupert Goold version was more accurate because it better illustrated how evil and devious the witches were meant to be. I liked the Rupert Goold version better because I think that it was the closest to the play and it was very interesting and suspenseful to watch.

Similarities and Differences

Wright v. Goold

One difference I noticed between the two versions was that in the 2006 Geoffry Wright version the witches were in a graveyard and in the 2010 Rupert Goold version the witches were in a hallway. This is significant because it is the setting of the films and showed where they meet up.

Another difference I noticed between the two versions was that in the 2006 Geoffrey Wright version the witches were young, pretty, and clean. While in the 2010 Rupert Goold version the witches were older, ugly, and not as clean.

One similarity I noticed between the two versions was that they were both very creepy and suspenseful. The witches drew attention to the audience and made the audience want to further watch Macbeth.
