Wicked Little Letters (2024)

1h 40m / R / Comedy

A 1920s English seaside town bears witness to a farcical and occasionally sinister scandal in this riotous new mystery comedy based on a stranger-than-fiction true story.  

When deeply conservative local Edith Swan (The Crown’s Olivia Colman) and her fellow residents begin to receive wicked letters full of unintentionally hilarious profanities, the rowdy, foul-mouthed Irish migrant Rose Gooding (Jessie Buckley) 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.
