The Silver Bullet ~ London Road

London-Road-Poster

Synopsis: London Road documents the events of 2006, when the quiet rural town of Ipswich was shattered by the discovery of the bodies of five women.

Release Date: US Release TBD 2015

Thoughts: Hmm…a musical about a series of murders that plagued a London town a decade ago? Rodgers and Hammerstein, this ain’t…but I’ve had my eye on this UK show ever since I saw a clip on a documentary about the National Theatre where it was originally staged. Adapted into a feature film starring Olivia Colman (Hyde Park on Hudson, The Iron Lady) and, surprisingly, Tom Hardy (Mad Max: Fury Road, Lawless) in addition to several real life residents of the London suburb this appears to be a challenging piece that delights in its unconventionality. Highly doubtful this will get much exposure in the U.S. so consider keeping your eye out for this one if/when it pops up on streaming video.
