Tom Hardy in 'London Road'

“London Road”

BBC Worldwide North America

While Damien Chazelle’s latest musical “La La Land” has garnered universal acclaim when it premiered at Venice last week, another musical is currently making the rounds now. Rufus Norris’ “London Road” tells the story of the Ipswich community’s reaction to the 2006 Steve Wright killings of five sex workers in the area. Based on Adam Cork and Alecky Blythe 2011 musical of the same name, the film is a “verbatim musical,” using the exact words of the residents of London Road as “lyrics” and setting them to an innovative musical score inspired by their actual dialects and intonations. The film stars Olivia Colman (“Peep Show”), Anita Dobson (“EastEnders”), Tom Hardy (“Mad Max: Fury Road”), and more. Watch an exclusive clip from the film below.
