Wicked Little Letters

Special Limited Engagement – One Week Only!

A 1920s English seaside town bears witness to a farcical and occasionally sinister scandal in this riotous mystery comedy. Based on a stranger than fiction true story, WICKED LITTLE LETTERS follows two neighbors: deeply conservative local Edith Swan (Olivia Colman) and rowdy Irish migrant Rose Gooding (Jessie Buckley). When Edith and fellow residents begin to receive wicked letters full of unintentionally hilarious profanities, foul-mouthed Rose is charged with the crime. The anonymous letters prompt a national uproar, and a trial ensues. However, as the town’s women — led by Police Officer Gladys Moss (Anjana Vasan) — begin to investigate the crime themselves, they suspect that something is amiss, and Rose may not be the culprit after all.

2024, 102 Minutes, Directed by Thea Sharrock, Rated R

  • “A deviously delightful comedy.”

    – Stephen Saito, THE MOVEABLE FEST
  • “There’s nothing like two of the finest actresses of their generation waging war against each other.”

    – Tom Shone, SUNDAY TIMES (UK)
  • “The Oscar winner and Oscar nominee, respectively, play warring neighbors in a tiny English village in the 1920s, and there is a glorious gusto to their very funny performances.”

    – Esther Zuckerman, VANITY FAIR
  • “Whether or not there’s a factual basis to the story, it’s undeniably an absolute blast.”

  • “It’s nominally a mystery — who is posting foul-mouthed letters around the English seaside town of Littlehampton? — but its appeal is down to the brio of an energized cast led by Jessie Buckley and Olivia Colman.”

    – Nicolas Rapold, FINANCIAL TIMES
  • “An ultimately rather cozy tale of British eccentricity, enlivened by a superb cast.”

    – James Mottram, TOTAL FILM
