Inspired by real events, "Landscapers" tells a unique story of a seemingly ordinary couple, Susan and Christopher Edwards, misfits on the run from reality, who cast themselves as Hollywood heroes in a love story tainted by a secret buried in the garden.
"Landscapers" tells a unique love story involving a seemingly ordinary couple who become the focus of an extraordinary investigation when a couple of dead bodies are discovered in the back garden of a house in Nottingham. Mild-mannered husband and wife Susan (Olivia Colman) and Christopher Edwards (David Thewlis) have been on the run from reality for over 15 years. When Christopher makes a startling call home to his step-mother, their role in a terrible crime that remained undiscovered for over a decade begins to emerge into the light. As the investigation moves forward, inspired by Susan's obsession with old Westerns and classic cinema, the fantasists cast themselves as Hollywood heroes in narratives of their own invention.
