Name: Macbeth
Director: Kenneth Branagh

Type: Movie

This movie, which was made in 2015, is a brilliant rendition of the famous Shakespeare play Macbeth, a story of where a Scottish man named Macbeth is the receiver of a prophecy from three witches that he will be the King of Scotland someday, over current ruler King Duncan. Overcome with grief and by his wife’s actions, he killed the current king and became king himself, fulfilling the prophecy that was told. However, this turns on him as his paranoia goes even further by killing others to lower his suspicions, and he was forced into being a tyrannical ruler. A civil war is then broken between Macbeth and Macduff, and since Macbeth and his wife were overcome by madness, the two were succumbed to their death, leaving Macduff victorious.

My thoughts:
An amazing rendition of a popular play made many years in the past, in fact, almost 400 years now. It is a powerful and excellent movie that conveys the language that Shakespeare put into it all those years ago. It is a rich story filled with tons of history which overall make it that much more special to me, since I have seen the movie back when it came out for the first time. It was a great movie that I could watch over and over again if I wanted to. If I were to be any of the characters in Macbeth, I would personally be Macduff, since he is moral person and a avenging hero that really fits my personality when it comes to being certain people.
