Rebus: Dead Souls
Hannah plays: Detective Inspector John Rebus
wakes in the opening scene, troubled by the night's dreams and his hangover.
The dreams precurse the story of his colleague, Jim Margolies, a younger
cop with everything to live for and everything going for him. Rebus' work
takes him to the housing estate where vigilante posses are creating anarchy
because a paedophile, Darren Rough, has been housed in their community.
Then, there's John's childhood sweetheart, Janice, and her search for her
lost son, Stuart...
Rebus finds feelings
within himself which surprise and disturb him, some empathy for Rough,
disbelief and grief at what happens to Margolies, and ... what might just
be a lasting happiness that will have him sleeping in his own bed again,
instead of spending his nights in the chair in the window, drinking, listening
to music and drinking.
Until IMDb gets it up, here's
the cast list for DEAD SOULS:
DI John Rebus
DS Siobhan Clarke
DI Jim Margolies
DCI Gill Templer
Dr. Joe Margolies
Billy Boy Brady
Man walking dog
Dorothy Jane Stewart
My thoughts: This
is the third in a series of films adapted from the novels of Ian Rankin.
It's based on Rankin's tenth book, Dead Souls.
If you've read the books
and are interested in discussing them (and the TV series), I invite you
to check out the Inspector
Rebus club on Yahoo.
