Let Him Have It

Let Him Have It

In one tragic moment, two lives are destroyed in this riveting, true exploration of a dark moment in the British legal system: "Let Him Have It." With those words uttered by a friend, a mentally handicapped young man shoots a policeman. But did the friend mean for him to hand over the gun or commit murder? This drama reveals the controversial postwar 1950's London murder trial that sent a mentally handicapped young man to the gallows for a murder he did not commit. Starring Christopher Eccleston ("The Others," "28 Days Later"), Academy Award-nominee and Golden Globe-winner Tom Courtenay ("The Dresser," "Dr. Zhivago") and Eileen Atkins ("Cold Mountain," "What a Girl Wants").
