This was a lucky find. I saw it at the Folger Shakespeare Library in DC. I'll definitely watch it again. The plot is tight and surprising and very dark. The cast is superb and clearly in tune with one and other. The film will have a wide appeal, but especially for folks who know the Scottish Play.
A dark comedy about a disgruntled summer-stock actor who contemptuously disregards the superstition surrounding Shakespeare's tragedy, Macbeth. By doing so he unleashes the curse of The Scottish Play and wreaks havoc on the company.
