Netflix has an 'Appropriate Adult'

One fantastic series to catch on Netflix Canada is 'Appropriate Adult', a 2011 British 'television film'. Emily Watson stars in this 2-episode series as the real-life Janet Leach, an average woman who became an 'appropriate adult' to assist in representing Fred West, a notorious British serial killer.  Some say the show was mis-representative, in fact, the police who interviewed Fred West apparently felt that way.

There is a great article in the Mirror that outlines Janet Leach's side of the story, and how her perspective was well represented in the film.

The performances were fantastic all around and the series was truly captivating from start to finish.

I give it a 9 out of 10.

Here is the Wikipedia description of the series:
