Stunning, creative and honest.
3 April 2018 | by paulturnip2000See all my reviews

If you watch this film not expecting a musical I can understand the confused reviews. I don't find it disrespectful in the slightest, it's verbatim and represents the views and words of the people at the time. I saw London Road when it was at the National Theatre and it blew me away. This film captures everything I loved about that show. Not to everyone's taste, but undeniably creative, fresh and heaving with talent.

I loved every second of it.
