Virginie Sélavy talks to Simon Rumley, director of the unpredictable murder ballad Red White and Blue, which tells the complex, violent tale of an emotionally reluctant girl and an edgy loner. One of the best thrillers of 2010 and a great take on screwed up love and serial killers.
Red White and Blue is released in UK cinemas on September 30 by Trinity Entertainment.
First broadcast on Resonance FM 104.4 on Friday 16 September.
