This impassioned political drama tries hard to capture the zeitgeist. Olivia Williams stars as Dorothy Green, a working-class mother filmed last year remonstrating with rioters. Now, improbably, she has been elected Mayor of London and struggles to reconcile her forthright manner with the chicanery of politics. Williams brilliantly conveys the nerves beneath Dorothy’s bluster, but this format’s too short for all the issues.
Working-class mother Dorothy Green is elected mayor of London after winning praise for her stance against the capital's rioters. However, she faces withering criticism about her background and credentials - and struggles to remain composed during a televised interview alongside one of her rivals. Political drama, starring Olivia Williams, Martin Shaw and Lucy Punch.
