Director: Emily Girton

A divorcee with a young child to care for, Ruth Ellis works in the kind of night clubs where there is more than just a drink on offer. The girls work hard, play hard, and dream of a movie star life. Then she meets the wealthy womanising David, a racing driver with whom she becomes obsessed. Fame comes - but not in the way she imagines.

The Thrill of Love dramatises the true story of Ruth Ellis, the last woman to be hanged in Britain, and takes a fresh look at the woman behind the headlines.
