    `Dance With A Stranger` is based on the true story of the last woman hanged in England. Starring Miranda Richardson in her spectacular movie debut (Vogue), along with Rupert Everett and Ian Holm, `Dance With A Stranger` is the stunning powerful and fascinating (Vogue) winner of the 1985 Cannes Best Picture Award.

    Ruth Ellis (Richardson) is a private dancer with a tough exterior. But her armour begins to crack when she meets wealthy race car driver David Blakely (Everett). And despite warnings against the affair by her friend and would-be lover Desmond Cussen (Ian Holm), Ellis is quickly seduced by Blakely’s charms. However, when his passions turn cold, she is caught in a dark dance of obsession, which gives way to desperation and finally culminates in a deadly confrontation that shatters the stillness one fateful night, with a shocking act... that may ultimately destroy them both.
