A good year, brightened by some unusual films.

 

london-road-musical-film-america.jpgLondon Road, which I saw on stage at the National Theatre, is based on the true story of how an East Anglian village copes with the fact that a serial killer of prostitutes lived in their street. The text is exact transcriptions of interviews with the villagers.
