Amazing series and the books are even better
Compelling, complex, gripping and genuinely disturbing, The Red Riding Trilogy is a breathtaking, neo-noir epic based on horrific, factual events and adapted for the screen by Tony Grisoni (Fear And Loathing In Las Vegas, Tideland) from David Peace’s series of groundbreaking novels. The Red Riding Trilogy follows controversial stories revolving around the manhunt for the brutal Yorkshire Ripper. After a failed attempt to crack Fleet Street, a cynical journalist returns to his homeland of Yorkshire and finds himself assigned to report on the case of a local girl who has gone missing. But after her bizarrely mutilated body is discovered, he is thrown into a sleaze infested, nightmarish world of corruption. As the killer’s identity remains a mystery, savage events spiral out of control, spanning generations and leading to a shocking climax.
The three films (1974, 1980 and 1983) are directed by three different filmmakers, Julian Jarrold (Becoming Jane), James Marsh (Academy Award® Winner 2009 for Man on Wire) and Anand Tucker (Hilary & Jackie), and each boasts a fantastic British cast. Sean Bean (Lord of the Rings) joins Mark Addy (The Full Monty), Warren Clarke (TV’s Dalziel and Pascoe), Paddy Considine (Dead Man’s Shoes), Andrew Garfield (Boy A), Rebecca Hall (Vicky Cristina Barcelona), David Morrissey (The Other Boleyn Girl) , Peter Mullan (Trainspotting) and Maxine Peake (TV’s Shameless).
