Woodburn: ute hits, kills pedestrian

A 30-year-old woman walking in Woodburn died on Sunday morning when a teenager driving a ute crashed into her, police said.

Based on a true scandal that stunned 1920s England, Wicked Little Letters centres on neighbours Edith Swan and Rose Gooding in the seaside town of Littlehampton.

The story follows these two neighbours: deeply conservative local Edith Swan (Olivia Colman); and rowdy Irish migrant Rose Gooding (Jessie Buckley). When Edith and fellow residents begin to receive wicked letters full of unintentionally hilarious profanities, foul-mouthed Rose is charged with the crime. The anonymous letters prompt a national uproar, and a trial ensues – Rose risks losing both her freedom and custody of her daughter. However, the town’s women – led by Police Officer Gladys Moss (Anjana Vasan) – are determined to find the real culprit and solve this perplexing mystery. They begin to investigate the crime as they suspect that something is amiss, and Rose may not be the culprit after all. It’s a real whodunit.

Wicked Little Letters is rated MA15+ and is screening at Palace Cinemas in Ballina and Byron.
