Seattle Premiere

Nineteen Seventy-Four starts with the fruitless investigations of newspaper correspondent Eddie Dunford (Andrew Garfield) into the latest missing person case assumed to be associated with the Yorkshire Ripper. When a body is eventually found, the plot picks up, while the themes of female exploitation and degradation evident in the crimes of the Ripper are reflected in the actions of Dunsford and a local real estate developer (played by Sean Bean). As the investigations continue, violence culminates to a fever pitch, with none left untarnished.

“This noirish tale never lets up as it digs darker and deeper and nastier than you’d ever expect.” —Anne Thompson
