In Netflix’s The Fall, Jamie Dornan plays a serial killer whose mundane other life as a loving husband and father might just be the most frightening and unexpected thing of all. Writer/director Allan Cubitt’s drama, co-produced by the BBC, also stars Gillian Anderson as the detective with secrets of her own who has been assigned to the case.
In the video from the British Film Institute below, Cubitt, Anderson, and Dornan have an in-depth discussion about their dark and twisted show, its nuanced characters, and the depiction of violence on-screen.
