Storyline

In 1974, Eddie Dunford, comes home from South England and gets a job as a cub reporter for the Yorkshire Post. A schoolgirl has gone missing, and Eddie suspects it's one of several crimes dating back six years; the police think not and blame gypsies. Eddie digs; the police stonewall him then two of them beat him after he visits the widowed mother of one of the girls missing for a few years. When a child's body turns up at a construction site of local building magnate John Dawson, Eddie has another thread to pull. By now, he's begun an affair with Paula, the widowed mom, and he suspects collusion among Dawson, the police, and his newspaper - but what are they covering up? Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

Trivia

The title of the trilogy, "Red Riding", derives from two main sources - Yorkshire, the location of the crimes, and Red Riding Hood, the traditional tale. Yorkshire, a county of England, is divided into three sections or ridings. The action takes place in the West Riding. One of the girls who goes missing is wearing a red anorak or hooded jacket, and one of the attackers bears the nickname, Wolf. See more »

Great Film making not to miss
26 February 2010 | by (Los Angeles) – See all my reviews

Watched Red Riding 1974 last night, and as is the case for truly exceptional film, became completely absorbed in the picture. Afterwards needed to spend the next hour processing what I have experienced. Then watched the next installment. Again another great example of exceptional film. As a former resident of the City of Chicago, it is incredibly difficult to explain a culture of total corruption that still exists there and as well in the film. If you have not lived in this environment you either don't believe it or can't fathom that it can exist on such a wide scope. Usually, corruption of this kind is set in another time or place that is a very safe distance from where we are today. Something is really really really wrong and almost everyone in the film is compliant in allowing this darkness to persist. It did not start out this way and most of the corruption does not involve the taking of life, but once you create a system such as this, it will. And the longer the system runs, the more tragic the loss of human life. What would you do in this situation? Check out Operation Graylord, Operation Silvershovel,etc.
