Sophie: A Murder in West Cork

‘Sophie: A Murder in West Cork’ premieres on Netflix on June 30th. The story of French filmmaker Sophie Toscan du Plantier, who was killed in 1996 at her isolated holiday cottage in West Cork, Ireland; the trauma to the West Cork community knowing the killer could be one of them and her French family’s agonising 25 year fight for justice. Directed by master storyteller John Dower, and produced by Suzanne Lavery and Academy Award-winning Simon Chinn & Emmy Award-winning Jonathan Chinn at Lightbox, this was my second lockdown series, edited in my living room!
