Welcome to Reel Britannia-a very British podcast about very British films....with the occasional hint of professionalism.
Join Scott and Steven for their review of Dance With A Stranger from 1985 starring Miranda Richardson, Rupert Everett, and Ian Holm.
This tale of murderous revenge focuses on Ruth Ellis, the last woman to be executed by the state in England. Ellis (Miranda Richardson), a former prostitute and single mom, falls for David Blakely (Rupert Everett) when she meets him in a club. Although Blakely comes from an aristocratic background, compared with Ellis's hardscrabble upbringing, the two start a torrid affair. But when David starts to pull away, Ruth is overwhelmed by jealousy and turns to extreme measure to get him back.
