More Than Half of 'Lady Macbeth's' Cast and Crew Comprised of Women, Director Says

It’s only fitting that “Lady Macbeth” — a film about female empowerment — would boast a large group of women in its cast and crew.

“The film deals with a woman who is humiliated by two older men. The fact that it’s written by a woman, produced by a woman, has over 50% of the cast and crew who are women is great. It’s everything really, I mean for me,” William Oldroyd said at the Variety Studio, presented by Orville Redenbacher’s, at the Sundance Film Festival.

Meanwhile, star Florence Pugh, discussed the significance of wearing a corset to get into character for the film.
