It was the true-life murder case that took the Victorian world by storm in 1860. It inspired
Wilkie Collins, Charles Dickens and Arthur Conan Doyle, among others, to delve into writing murder
The Suspicions of Mr. Whicher
Today's spotlight is on the 2011 dramatic retelling of the real-life murder of three-year-old Saville Kent, who was
found at the bottom of his family's outdoor privy with his throat slit.
With no obvious motive for the murder, no witnesses, and critical clues--lost or compromised, Detective Jack Whicher, one of the eight original detectives of Scotland Yard, is sent to delve deep into the affairs of all, to try and solve this puzzling mystery.
If you love mysteries, particularly Victorian, than you must check this movie out. It was very good. I watched the whole thing, with my sister and a humongo bowl of popcorn, on YouTube. I could not find this available to us-non-Brits, in any other format. The quality of the video is slightly grainy but you can still enjoy the movie, no prob.
If you're worried about how graphic this is, don't be, it's not at all. It's clean and there's great acting and good detecting to be had for all.
So enjoy and let me know your thoughts on this one!
Also, a second mystery movie, featuring the lead Detective Whicher begins filming in January 2013.
Don't ask me why the font color is white in this post.
I have repeatedly highlighted "all" and made it "black" to N.O. A.V.A.I.L. Grrr...
