Better than I expected
18 June 2013 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

This little gem of a movie deserves wider recognition. I'd never heard of it until I stumbled upon it one afternoon on the UK MoviesForMen channel.

You certainly get a great sense of the Victorian Era in Britain in which it is set and Peace, as played by Michael Martin Harvey makes a chillingly credible sociopath. He put me in mind somehow of Richard Attenborough's seedy Christie in 10 Rillington Place.

The only criticism I could make is that Harvey was maybe a little old for the lead role as he looks the wrong side of 60! The courtroom scenes are also very realistic.

I wonder how it came to be forgotten.
