Boston Strangler stars two-time Oscar® nominee Keira Knightley (The Imitation Game, Silent Night), Emmy® nominee Carrie Coon (Fargo, The Gilded Age), Alessandro Nivola (Amsterdam), David Dastmalchian (Dune), Morgan Spector (Homeland), Bill Camp (Joker), and Academy Award® winner Chris Cooper (Little Women).

The film follows Loretta McLaughlin (Keira Knightley), a reporter for the Record-American newspaper, who becomes the first journalist to connect the Boston Strangler murders. As the mysterious killer claims more and more victims, Loretta attempts to continue her investigation alongside colleague and confidante Jean Cole (Carrie Coon). Yet, the duo finds themselves stymied by the era’s rampant sexism. Nevertheless, McLaughlin and Cole bravely pursue the story at significant personal risk, putting their own lives on the line in their quest to uncover the truth.
