A film adaptation of the sell out National Theatre show, London Road follows the residents effected by the murders of five women in Ipswich in 2006.
London Road is Cuba Pictures second film with acclaimed director Rufus Norris. Written by Alecky Blythe and Adam Cork and made with the National Theatre, London Road is the story of a community that heals themselves in the wake of horrible events.
The script is entirely comprised of the words of the residents that lived in Ipswich at the time.
Starring Olivia Colman, the original cast and Tom Hardy the film is a truly unique experience.
London Road is enjoying critical success at various festivals having shown at Toronto Film Festival and San Sebastian.
We are delighted that the film was listed amongst the Guardian film critic Peter Bradshaw’s favourite films of 2015 http://goo.gl/dJFrO8.
