The triple BAFTA and Golden Globe winning biopic of the controversial Lord and prisoner’s rights campaigner. Starring Jim Broadbent, Samantha Morton and Andy Serkis.

100% Rotten Tomatoes score and rated 7.7 on IMDB.

Directed by Oscar-winner Tom Hooper (The Kings Speech / The Danish Girl) and written by Oscar-nominee Peter Morgan (The Crown).

When Longford (Jim Broadbent) receives a letter from convicted child murderer Myra Hindley (Samantha Morton) requesting a prison visit, he accepts the invitation despite protests from wife Margaret (Lindsay Duncan).

He forms an unexpected friendship with Hindley, based on their mutual Catholic upbringing, and begins a decades-long fight to secure her parole.

But what Longford thinks he knows about Hindley is challenged during a visit to her partner-in-crime Ian Brady (Andy Serkis). His faith is further put to the test as popular outcry mounts against him for his involvement with the despised couple.

What the Press Said:

“Jim Broadbent perfectly captured Lord Longford’s ability to get it all a bit wrong” – The Guardian

“Both Longford and The Queen are dramas that meticulously recreate a pivotal time in modern Britain… A chilling, strangely affecting portrait of their bizarre 30-year friendship” – New York Times
