Goofs

Early on Lizzie Cree says, "It betrays the suffering of women. My gender become inured to injustice". The character should have said, "My sex becomes inured...". Substituting "gender", a grammatical term, for "sex", meaning male or female, is a modern genteelism. See more »

Quotes

Lizzie Cree: My husband was adept at presenting a false face to the world, sir.
Mr. Greatorex: And that is soemthing you would understand, is it not, Mrs. Cree? Playing a role.
[general laughter in the court]
Lizzie Cree: I used to be a music hall performer, if that is what you mean.
Mr. Greatorex: And what of the role you play today before this court? That of a respectable, educated lady.

The craft of film making at it's very best
21 August 2017 | by colinsjonesSee all my reviews

I really loved this film. Right from the beginning, the music hall feel of the unfolding drama was very engaging. Intelligent editing and the fabulous script kept the pace of the plot at a rate which held my interest from start to finish as each twist and turn was revealed. John Kildare (Bill Nighy) was the methodical, steady influence which balanced the emotional excesses of the other characters. He only showed emotion when confronted with the inevitability of the fate of the intelligent and articulate Lizzie Cree (Olivia Cooke). The film used dramatic devices to great effect, showing several characters actually committing the awful crimes as each became suspect. The interleaving of the music hall version of the Lizzie Cree story with the live action which somehow heightened the suspense by making you smile thus relieving tension. The sets were a total joy, completely recreating Victorian environments in very convincing fine detail. The cast were superb, totally plausible and very engaging. Don't miss this fabulous film, the craft of film making at it's very best.
