Intriguing. But was there a killer in Hangasman? Feels like, if in this fictional universe SJ was writing it at a time when there was a real killer stalking around, you'd have thought she'd fictionalise that rather than just the weirdos she was hanging around with. Anyway, sounds like it's worth a watch...
A real girl actually disappeared in 1946 in the area. She's basically riffing on that during the film. It's worth noting though that her depression and drinking was hampering her progress. The novel Hangsaman does touch on many of the themes explored in the film.
You've made think that I should rewrite the reiew!
