TV Review: ‘National Treasure: Kiri’ on Hulu

TV Review: ‘National Treasure: Kiri’ on Hulu
It’s strange to call an essentially tragic limited series magical, but the word applies to “National Treasure: Kiri.”

The four-part series fits squarely into the top tier of U.K. crime dramas, which means few characters start out with any contentment, and things deteriorate from there. But Jack Thorne’s writing for both seasons of “National Treasure” never slides into the lazy habits of misery porn. “Kiri,” like its predecessor, is both brisk and illuminating, providing compassionate and honest character studies.

Each character in the latest incarnation of “National Treasure,” as was the case with the stellar first version,

Kiri episode 1 review

Louisa Mellor Jan 10, 2018

Sarah Lancashire is terrific in new four-part social work drama Kiri, written by Jack Thorne

This review contains spoilers.

Doubt was the engine of writer Jack Thorne’s previous Channel 4 drama National Treasure, in which Robbie Coltrane played a popular entertainer on trial for multiple sexual assaults. Was Coltrane’s character guilty or not? Whose memory of events was reliable? Who was lying and who was telling the truth?

Kiri, Thorne’s latest, directed by Euros Lyn, is driven by blame. When a child in care is murdered, where should the blame land? With her killer, certainly, but also with those charged with keeping her safe—foster parents, grandparents, social worker?

Sarah Lancashire plays the latter, Miriam Grayson, with the instant, garrulous appeal of her role as Sgt Catherine Cawood in BBC police drama Happy Valley. We meet her mid-monologue, cheerily

DVD Review – Urban Hymn (2015)

Urban Hymn, 2015.

Directed by Michael Caton-Jones.

Starring Shirley Henderson, Letitia Wright, Isabella Laughland, Steven Mackintosh, and Ian Hart.

Synopsis :

Set against a backdrop of the 2011 UK summer riots, a determined social worker encourages a young offender to develop her singing talent.

Urban Hymn is a drama certainly singing from a worthy enough song sheet. The film details the sort of youthful (and not so youthful) rage, delinquent activity and anti-social lawlessness that marked much of the UK riots of summer 2011. It aims to bring a clear sense that this sort of rage needs to be understood and the disenfranchised need to be inspired to do something more productive with their time other than looting and robbing. It’s only partially successful in this, getting bogged down by a fairly old-fashioned style of formatting and direction. Michael Caton-Jones (Rob Roy, Doc Hollywood) is an experienced director, but this picture has a fairly flat-footed delivery when,
