"Hanging people is not always correct"
4 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

Fantastic movie that gives an insight to what its like to live a double life for so many years. Actors are fantastic as this would not be an easy roll to play. Not all the decisions that are made in this movie turn out to be the correct ones and that adds lots of twist and turns that are not expected.

"A well executed film "
5 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

I was hanging out for ages to see this. Roped the old lady into swinging by to watch. Well worth dropping $15 on. Spall's performance is absolutely capital. Nary a trace of gallows humour, and the film is just the right length…

Description

Pierrepoint is the gripping and dramatic true-life story of Albert Pierrepoint, Britain's most notorious hangman. Following in the footsteps of his father and uncle before him, Albert joins the 'family business' in 1934.

Living a secret life as a master hangman, as well as a humble grocery deliveryman and loyal husband, Pierrepoint's reputation as the most highly regarded executioner in the land results in him executing some of Britain's most infamous murderers including Derek Bentley and Ruth Ellis, and also the Nazi war criminals convicted at the Nuremberg Trials. But the media coverage from these shatters Pierrepoint's closely guarded anonymity turning him into a minor celebrity.

As his two lives collide, and public opinion turns against capital punishment, Pierrepoint troubled by his notoriety is ready to give it all up, but fate has other plans in store for him...
