 The Thrill of Love is a superb ensemble piece which explores the true story of Ruth Ellis, the last woman to be hanged in London. Ruth was a hostess in the seedy nightclubs of 1950s London. In 1955 she shot her lover 6 times in broad daylight.

Why did she do it? Who gave her the gun? Why did she make no effort to defend herself in court?
