very odd!
6 April 2016 | by paulapierceSee all my reviews

I decided to watch this as I knew about the story and thought it would be a drama about it.

I must have totally missed the 'musical' genre, which I have to say is a bit random, covering this terrible occurrence.

To be fair, there isn't much about the murders its mostly about the community and how they were affected by them and as a result they came together to create a better area.

The singing is a bit rubbish to say the least, however, having Olivia Coleman and Tom Hardy in the cast is a positive (sorry Olivia, singing isn't your strong point)
