Dance With A Stranger is a moving insight into a tragic “Crime of Passion” that changed the conscience of a nation. It is the story of one woman and two lovers – each driven by the powerful forces of sexuality. Ruth Ellis, (Miranda Richardson), a glamorous nightclub hostess and mother of two children, embarks on a tempestuous affair with handsome racing driver David Blakely, played by Rupert Everett. A series of tragic consequences culminated in the execution of Ellis in 1955. Her execution led to a tidal wave of public emotion and the abolition of capital punishment. This is a film that does more than chronicle a series of events; it captures perfectly the mood of a post-war nation.
