Plot summary

What is The Tragedy of Macbeth movie plot?

Here is a short review of "The Tragedy of Macbeth" movie plot summary.

Macbeth (Denzel Washington) and Banquo (Bertie Carvel), having led King Duncan's army to victory over the traitorous Thane of Cawdor, are approached by three witches on the battlefield. The witches hail Macbeth as Thane of Cawdor and proclaim that he shall be King hereafter before stating that Banquo shall father a line of kings. King Duncan (Brendan Gleeson) orders the Thane of Ross (Alex Hassell) to execute Cawdor and reinvest the title upon Macbeth. Macbeth writes to Lady Macbeth (Frances McDormand), informing her of the prophecies.
When King Duncan decides to spend a night at Macbeth's castle, Lady Macbeth convinces her husband to commit regicide. She drugs the King's servants, and a hesitant Macbeth carries out the killing. Early next morning, Macduff (Corey Hawkins), the Thane of Fife, discovers the body, while Macbeth murders the servants to tie up loose ends. Fearing for his own life, Duncan's heir Malcolm (Harry Melling) flees to England, and Macbeth assumes the throne as the new King. Uneasy over the prophecy concerning Banquo, Macbeth arranges to have him and his son Fleance (Lucas Barker) murdered. Macbeth's assassins, accompanied by Ross, kill Banquo, but Fleance escapes.
An increasingly paranoid Macbeth becomes a tyrant. At a royal banquet, he hallucinates and begins raving at Banquo's ghost. Lady Macbeth has the guests dismissed before drugging him to calm him down. During his trance, Macbeth is again visited by the witches. They conjure a vision of Fleance, who tells him to beware of Macduff, that he shall be King until Great Birnam Wood comes to Dunsinane Hill, and that he shall be harmed by no man born of a woman. Macbeth orders the whole Macduff household be put to death, but Macduff himself survives, having earlier fled to England.
