There are ways of asking a bereaved mother for permission to exhume the body of her murdered 15-year-old daughter. None of them includes an overpoweringly narcissistic human-rights lawyer acting for the man who might have killed her getting in your face and asking, “So what do you say?”
The mum’s reaction is entirely understandable and leaves Emma Banville (Helen McCrory) reeling. I hope all of the forces ranged against Emma prevail in the end because she’s so annoying. Everyone’s out to get her – the police, the security services, the hated press. Patrick Harbinson’s script is so messy it’s hard to see what, exactly, the story is meant to be.
Released from prison following the retrial, Kevin faces a barrage of abuse from the public - with even his own son Jason calling him a murderer. Only local MP Matthew Wild is able to talk the mob down and with no other option, Emma is forced to take Kevin to her home for his safety. Meanwhile, Heather Myles arrives in England and pays Cambridge master Sir Alistair McKinnon a visit to get as much information as possible from him about Emma. Thriller, starring Helen McCrory, with Michael Gambon and Sam Swainsbury.
