Pierrepoint

"1940's England. When the world needed a hero, he gave them what they wanted. But history can be cruel."

"Pierrepoint (The Last Hangman)" is a 90 minute long British film from 2005 that focuses on the life and career of Albert Pierrepoint, widely regarded as the greatest hangman throughout the entirety of the United Kingdom. The film follows Albert's life from his training, his official acceptance into the position in '32, and the various points of his career until his resignation in '56.

While the film was initially intended to air on the United Kingdom's ITV network in 2004, it made its cinematic debut during 2005's Toronto Film Festival and was subsequently released in the United Kingdom in 2006.
