BBC-funded adaptation of Peace's Red Riding Quartet (distilled down to a trilogy in the name of manageability). As dark, trenchant and implosive as Peace's novels, Red Riding is a black meditation on power and abuse in northern 1970s England.
Serial murders, child abductions, and police corruption. Oh my! The series begins in 1974, jumps to 1980, and ends in 1983.
These three separate but interrelated films move unflinchingly through a turbulent and tragic decade in the West Riding region of Yorkshire, England. Serial murders, child abductions and rampant police corruption abound--no one escapes undamaged.
