Throughout the film, we get a glimpse of morality coming from the characters. Kurzel’s idea of placing the concept of child loss at the heart of the action, especially for Lady Macbeth, and the need for closure without leaving the weapons on the battlefield, for Macbeth himself. The feeling of loss manifests itself into violence and death which paint the very picture of an authentic Shakespearean play. The film is shot considering a wide range of perspectives which include secondary and trivial characters. This aspect influenced the plot in bringing out humanity and affinity in the scenes; scenes that are only described in speeches in the stage play including the initial battle scene and, later, the gruesome deaths of Macduff’s wife and children are shown in the film.

Her response to the letter from Macbeth clearly depicts her lust for power. When she said “Cawdor...shalt be what thou art promised” she almost asserts the witches predictions. And that communicates her determination to go to extreme lengths to get what she wants. In Act 1 Scene 5 we come across Lady Macbeth’s most famous soliloquy which exposes the depth to which evil runs through her veins.

Imagine a childhood being so traumatizing that it follows you into adulthood and affects your life decisions. In Sylvia Plath's poem “Daddy,” the speaker is talking about her father in an obsessive way. She is an adult looking back at her childhood and remembering all the bad things that her father has done in her life. Plath uses allusions to the historical events of the holocaust, show her victimization she felt, allusions to Greek Mythology, showing misplaced adoration from seeing him as a god and allusions to vampirism and voodoo dolls infer her vengefulness against her father. Vampirism and voodoo dolls are forms of pulp fiction and witchcraft.

Lauren Hale explains being able to identify with the main character due to her own journey of motherhood and insanity thereafter. Charlotte Perkins Gilman successfully incorporated a realistic insanity into the main character of the short story as well as exposing the mental health diagnoses and cures for the 19th century.
