Love. Ghosts. Shakespeare.
The stage is a magical place.
A successful actress accepts the role of Lady Macbeth at a small New England theater, where she finds herself haunted by the ghost of William Shakespeare – who’s keen to do some rewrites...
“The Scottish Play is fun. The movie is amusing and emotionally fulfilling in all its themes and homage to Shakespeare, along with discussions on the playwright’s traits. The film will make you laugh, and it shall excite you, but it successfully remains heart-warming.”
“…gentle and charming … leaves the audience with the welcome ‘parting gift’ of real, smiling satisfaction.”
CB Wismar, Main Street Magazine
“ Boynton cleverly begins playing with Shakespeare lore by diving right into the curse. The Scottish Play strikes and makes something unique out of the old myths. Boynton hides layers of subtexts and ironies throughout the film. He plays with the idea of Macbeth’s curse and deliberately creates two opposing discussions."
“…an amusingly fantastic tale of ‘what if’ [that] hits the mark on every level.”
“...funny, engrossing and profoundly moving … a stellar achievement.”
Midwest Film Journal
"This [film] gives us an original idea of the mystery around the play … There is plenty of potential from meeting an author of an original play and how their vision has changed over the years. The performances in the movie are strong, with Tina Benko and Will Brill playing out the conversation between the two throughout the film.”
