1979, Trevor Nunn version and 2010, Rupert Goold version
Text compared to the Films
Difference & Similarity between the two films
A difference that I noticed between the two movies is that in the 1979 version, Macbeth was very indifferent when he found out Lady Macbeth died. He didn't really show any emotion towards the news, but he was nervous because he knew that his time was coming now. It was significant because how he acted in the book was that he was upset, but she was going to die some day.
A similarity of the two films is that both films made Macbeth the same. An evil man just wanting to kill people, now with a dead wife he has nothing to lose. Just his own life. This is significant because in the book, he turned out to be a very dark and evil man towards the end of the book. Just like they did in both films.
