Nineteen Eighty-Three

Feb 27 - Mar 04, 2010

(Anand Tucker, UK, 2009, 35mm, 100 min)

Seattle Premiere

A young girl is missing, and her case bares a stark resemblance to the closed case of the Yorkshire Ripper (one of Peace’s novels is skipped between the second and final installment in the film series). Detective Chief Superintendent Maurice Jobson (David Morrissey) is left to wonder if he’s convicted the wrong man. When lawyer John Piggott (Mark Addy) is asked by the family of the man onvicted for the murders years ago (Daniel Mays) to try to reopen the case, he works with Jobson to unearth a series of cover-ups and to make right a grave miscarriage of justice.

Like the two preceding films, Nineteen Eighty-Three gains as much from its stellar cast of new and known talent as from its gripping plot and the stylistic construction of the film’s grim atmosphere.
