LONDON ROAD

LONDON ROAD

London Road documents the events that shook Suffolk in 2006, when the quiet rural town of Ipswich was shattered by the discovery of the bodies of five women. The residents of London Road had struggled for years with frequent soliciting and kerb-crawling on their street. The film follows the community who found themselves at the epicenter of the tragic events. Using their own words set to an innovative musical score, London Road tells a moving story of ordinary people coming together during the darkest of experiences. Hailed as a remarkable, ground-breaking work during two sell-out runs at the National Theatre, the feature film adaptation of “London Road” reunites the award winning team.

RUFUS NORRIS, born in 1965, was an actor for several years before turning to stage directing. For the National Theatre he has directed several critically acclaimed plays, including “London Road” by Alecky Blythe and Adam Cork. Rufus Norris’ debut feature film Broken premiered at the Cannes International Film Festival in 2012 and won the Award for Best Film at the British Independent Film Awards in 2013. In April 2015, Norris will succeed Nicholas Hytner as director of the National Theatre. // Films (selection): Broken (2012), London Road (2015)
