  • A24’s “The Tragedy of Macbeth,” starring Denzel Washington, hit Apple TV Plus on January 14.
  • Joel Coen wrote and directed the new film adaptation of William Shakespeare’s famous play.
  • Apple TV Plus costs $5/month and new members get a seven-day trial.

After three weeks in theaters, A24’s “The Tragedy of Macbeth” is now available to stream on Apple TV Plus. This adaptation of Shakespeare’s classic tragedy stars Denzel Washington and Frances McDormand, and is written and directed by Joel Coen. 

Coen is best known for his collaborations with his brother Ethan; their past work includes “Fargo” and “No Country for Old Men.” “The Tragedy of Macbeth” marks Joel’s solo directorial debut.

“Macbeth” tells the story of a medieval lord whose ambition for the throne leads to ruin after a mysterious prophecy. The play has been adapted to film many times, from a 2015 epic starring Michael Fassbender, to Akira Kurosawa’s 1957 film “Throne of Blood,” which set the story in feudal Japan. Like “Throne of Blood,” Coen’s “The Tragedy of Macbeth” is shot entirely in black and white.

“The Tragedy of Macbeth” has received critical acclaim. The movie currently holds a “93% Certified Fresh” rating on Rotten Tomatoes, a review aggregation website.
