It's a rather sad Jigsaw puzzle.
The Cry wasn't given a huge deal of publicity, it kind of got lost amongst snappier dramas, such as Bodyguard, and Killing Eve. It deals with a pretty sad story, it's gritty, intriguing, moving, and does a great job making you feel things. As you watch you feel pity, hatred and justice, it's cleverly played out. Coleman's performance is very, very good, as it progresses it makes sense why she is how she is.
If I'm being honest, I'd say it feels padded at times, they could have perhaps condensed it into three hour parts, or two ninety minute parts, to make it a little snappier.
Overall it's very good, very moving. 8/10
