He meets with Hindley - a young woman serving a life sentence for child murders committed with her lover, Ian Brady - shortly after her imprisonment and the visits incite widespread public outrage.
Longford review Product Description
Mere mention of convicted child murderer Myra Hindley's name is enough to send shivers down the spines of most people in her native U.K. This HBO drama concerns the strange friendship Hindley struck up with a British Lord, Frank Aungier Pakenham (the seventh Earl of Longford), after she was incarcerated.
"This U.K. -made movie features solid acting and an excellent script by Peter Morgan." -- Gilbert Cruz, Entertainment Weekly.
