Storyline

Set in Glasgow in 1982, Paddy Meehan is a young girl in a world of men; a feisty copy boy in the sexist, hard-boozing, cutthroat world of journalism. Paddy dreams of being an investigative reporter, and she grabs the opportunity when a young boy, Brian Wilcox, is kidnapped and found murdered. Paddy sees connections to a year-old crime that nobody else sees and she is determined to make it her story. But when Paddy crosses the line, she becomes outcast from her devoutly Catholic family and puts the lives of her colleagues, as well as her own, at risk. The closer she gets to the murderer, the closer she gets to murder; and the price of achieving her dream will prove greater than she can ever imagine. Written by Bye

Nice thriller, with a thick Glasgow accent on the side
6 October 2011 | by (Romania) – See all my reviews

This is a good movie, with a well acting female lead as the newspaper copy-girl Patricia who dreams of becoming a reporter and stumbles upon clues on a child murder in the area. However it is not great, and the thick Glasgow accent of all involved makes it even less accessible to non English audiences.

I don't know why they called it a series, either, as it is really a two parter film. Maybe they intended to continue it with the adventures of this tiny girl in this tiny community of uber-Catholic tiny minded people, but what would have been the point?

Bottom line: a nice watch, with convincing acting and script, some thrills and a true glimpse of Glasgow in the 70-80's. Subtitles don't hurt, either. Peter Capaldi plays in this one, as a secondary character.
