    Reviews

    enthralling and haunting

    Dave Calhoun
    Time Out

    As gripping on screen as it was on stage, London Road remains a work of great finesse and originality

    Stephen Dalton
    The Hollywood Reporter

    touching, thought provoking, deadly serious and strangely humorous

    Andy Lea
    Daily Star Sunday

    London Road was a mighty success on stage. Now it is a unique triumph on the movie screen.

    Peter Bradshaw
    The Guardian

    unafraid to scratch away at disturbing tensions in our suburban lives

    Mark Kermode
    The Observer

    Rufus Norris brings flow and verve to the screen version

    Nigel Andrews
    Financial Times

    brilliantly captures the spirit and personality of our nation

    Brian Viner
    Daily Mail

    extraordinary... It’s playful, sometimes sardonic, but never loses empathy for locals or victims

    sharp, nuanced and even a little satirical... Norris has transferred it to the screen with great fluency

    Edward Porter

    the artifice of the form works something wondrous with the material, highlighting the generic nature of our response to extreme violence.
