Sure to be one of the cinematic events of the year, RED RIDING is a mesmerizing neo-noir epic based on factual events and adapted for the screen by Tony Grisoni (Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas) from David Peace’s electrifying series of novels.
1974 (directed by Julian Jarrold, Brideshead Revisited) centers on a rookie journalist (Andrew Garfield) investigating a series of child abductions and murders with possible ties to corrupt police, business, and politicians. 1980 (directed by Academy Award®-winner James Marsh, Man on Wire) finds the police and the public still baffled that the “Ripper” remains at large and may have inspired a copycat killer. In 1983 (directed by Anand Tucker, Hilary and Jackie), Detective Maurice Jobson (David Morrissey) notices a number of powerful similarities between the abduction of another young girl and cases he had investigated back in the ’70s — and for which a man was convicted and sentenced.
Tickets for this special event are $18 for IFC Center Members, $25 for general admission, $20 for seniors.
