Rural England, 1865. Katherine (Florence Pugh) is stifled by her loveless marriage to a bitter man twice her age, whose family are cold and unforgiving. When she embarks on a passionate affair with a young worker on her husband's estate, a force is unleashed inside her, so powerful that she will stop at nothing to get what she wants. Based on Russian Nikolai Leskov’s “Lady Macbeth of the Mtsensk District.”

“Florence Pugh, in a performance that will soon be legendary, dives deep into this terrifically twisted, erotic thriller and makes it matter.” –Rolling Stone

This brilliantly feminist British indie film plunges a cold, sharp knife into the back of bonnet dramas. Time OutA taut and well-paced period drama elevated by Pugh's riveting performance. Toronto StarCast Florence Pugh, Cosmo Jarvis, Paul Hilton
