35mm presentation - Red Riding: 1983 is the third entry in an ambitious, dark and thrilling trilogy of interlinking films set in Northern England in the 1970s and ‘80s. In 1983, another young girl has disappeared and Detective Chief Superintendent Maurice Jobson (David Morrissey) recognizes some alarming similarities to the abductions in 1974, forcing him to come to terms with the fact that he may have helped convict the wrong man as being the Yorkshire Ripper. When local solicitor John Piggott (Mark Addy) is persuaded to fight this miscarriage of justice he finds himself slowly uncovering a catalogue of cover ups. Also starring Sean Bean, Warren Clarke, Shaun Dooley, Lisa Howard, Jim Carter, Sean Harris and Michelle Dockery. Directed by Anand Tucker (When Did You Last See Your Father?, Hilary and Jackie).
