DISTRICT 13: ULTIMATUM
Three years after the events of the original “District 13,” the authorities are attempting to return law and order to the Parisian neighborhood, a racially charged ghetto populated by violent drug dealing gangs and vicious killers. David Belle and Cyril Raffaelli reprise their original roles of Leito and Damien in this French actioner.
RED RIDING: 1974
In the first of three made-for-British-television films about the infamous Yorkshire Ripper, a young reporter (Andrew Garfield from “The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus”) ignores the advice of his superiors and digs deeper and deeper into the background of a developer (Sean Bean) he suspects is behind a rash of preteen girls being kidnapped, raped and murdered. The fast-rising Rebecca Hall costars as the mother of one of the dead girls. Directed by Julian Jarrold (“Becoming Jane”).
RED RIDING: 1980
The second entry in the trilogy finds a squeaky clean Manchester police officer (Paddy Considine from “In America”) being summoned to Yorkshire to circumvent that town’s corrupt bobbies and politicians to finally bring The Ripper to justice. But he may wind up being sorry he ever got involved, especially with his old flame around threatening to ruin his marriage. Directed by James Marsh (“Man on Wire”).
RED RIDING 1983
In the final installment, another young girl has disappeared and Yorkshire’s chief detective (David Morrissey) recognizes alarming similarities to the abductions in 1974. Soon, he suspects he may have helped convict the wrong man, especially once an enterprising attorney (Mark Addy) enters the picture and a plethora of cover-ups (think of the Amy Bishop case) begin to reveal themselves. Directed by Anand Tucker.
