The Limehouse Golem

Director: Juan Carlos Medina. Starring: Bill Nighy, Olivia Cooke, Sam Reid. UK 2016. 109 mins.

Set in London’s East End in the late 1800s, The Limehouse Golem follows John Kildare (Nighy), an erudite detective whose career is going nowhere. To make matters worse, he’s assigned a case he can’t crack: a series of murders so brutal the locals believe it could only be the work of a mythical creature. But when rising music hall star Lizzie Cree (Cooke) is accused of murdering her husband, Kildare suspects clearing her name will bring him closer to the truth. Told in flashbacks chronicling Lizzie’s picaresque rise through the seamier habitats of showbiz, this Victorian murder-mystery keeps us guessing throughout. Look out for some wonderful cameos from the likes of Eddie Marsan (Their Finest), Douglas Booth (The Riot Club) and fêted Spanish actress Maria Valverde.
