DESCRIPTION: (from HBO's web site) Frank Aungier Pakenham, the 7th Earl of Longford, was one of the most controversial public figures in modern British history, an eccentric crusader with a proclivity for championing lost causes. But it was his last cause-an unlikely friendship with reviled child-killer Myra Hindley (a.k.a. "the Moors Murderer")-that would undermine his political career and, possibly, her 36-year attempt to win her freedom. Oscar(R)-winner Jim Broadbent (Best Supporting Actor in 2001's Iris) and Oscar(R)-nominee Samantha Morton (Sweet and Lowdown, In America) star in this powerful HBO Films drama about crime, punishment, redemption and forgiveness. Andy Serkis (King Kong, the Lord of the Rings trilogy) and Lindsay Duncan (HBO's Rome) co-star. Directed by Tom Hooper; written and executive produced by Peter Morgan.
