подкрадывается дочь

"Интимные отношения" Intimate Relations

"Семейство Бисли некое воплощение добродетелей, свойственных провинциальным семьям. Но за основательными фасадами происходит нечто загадочное. Миссис Бисли решает взять у юного и весьма ранимого матроса, постояльца дом. Но по воле случая, юноша оказывается в ловушке, подобной смертельному треугольнику: с одной стороны его атакует Бисли, с другой подкрадывается ее дочь…"


The film is based on the true story of Albert Goozee, who was put on trial in 1956 in England. He was arrested after his 53-year-old landlady, Mrs. Lydia Leakey, and her 14-year-old daughter, Norma, were found murdered.[1] Goozee was tried only for the murder of the teenaged girl (Joyce, in the movie), convicted and imprisoned for life. The movie follows Goozee's own version of events, portraying him as an increasingly desperate young man caught in a love triangle between a mother and daughter, although as the only survivor there is no way of verifying if his version of the events was entirely truthful.

Goozee was released from prison in 1971 but was imprisoned again in 1996, the year Intimate Relations came out, for unrelated sex offences.

Albert William Goozee (8 September 1923 – 25 November 2009) was a British murderer and paedophile, whose crimes inspired the 1996 film Intimate Relations. In June 1956, Goozee murdered his 53-year-old landlady, Mrs. Lydia Leakey,[1] and her 14-year-old daughter, Norma,[1] in the New Forest, Hampshire. Sentenced at the Hampshire Assizes, Winchester, to death by hanging on the 26th of November 1956, Goozee was given a reprieve four days before his execution was due to take place and was instead detained at Broadmoor high-security psychiatric hospital. Released in 1971, Goozee, who had been diagnosed as a paranoid schizophrenic, was subsequently convicted of several further violent crimes, and in 1996 was convicted of indecently assaulting two girls, aged 12 and 13. Sentencing, Mr. Justice Gower said one of the two cases had been "one of the most serious cases of indecent assault that I have ever had to deal with." In October 2009, Goozee again became the subject of media interest when it was discovered that he had been released on compassionate grounds into the care of a nursing home for the elderly in Wigston, Leicester. While there, Goozee began a hunger strike and refused all food and medication. After developing a blood clot in his heart and complications from diabetes, he died on 25 November 2009. The coroner recorded a verdict of death by natural causes.

In January 1955, 31-year-old Goozee, who had served as a merchant seaman, became a lodger at 5 Alexandra Road, Parkstone, Dorset.[2][3] His landlady was 51-year-old[4] Lydia Margaretta "Greta" Leakey, who lived there with her disabled husband, Thomas Vincent Leakey, and their 12-year-old daughter, Norma Noreen Leakey.[3] Mr. Leakey, who had had one of his legs amputated during World War II[dubious – discuss], was described in court as living almost a separate life from Mrs. Leakey and the two slept in separate bedrooms. Within a few weeks of moving in, Goozee had started an affair with Mrs. Leakey.[5][1] At his trial, Goozee claimed that he was seduced by the daughter and had conducted an affair with her also.[6] Having apparently discovered the affair between Goozee and his wife, Mr. Leakey left the home for a while, but in early June 1956 returned and demanded that Goozee leave.[7] Goozee moved out and took up lodgings on Sunnyhill Road, Parkstone.[7][8]

On 17 June 1956, Goozee took Lydia Leakey and her daughter out for a picnic at Bignell Wood near Cadnam in the New Forest, using the Wolseley car which Mrs. Leakey had purchased for him.[5][1] Goozee was later found by the side of the road bleeding from a stab wound to his abdomen. A short distance away police found the bodies of Lydia and Norma Leakey. Lydia had died from a fractured skull and multiple stab wounds, while her daughter was killed by a single stab wound which had penetrated her heart. Post-mortem examination revealed that Norma had also been indecently assaulted. The murder weapon, a double-edged Fairbairn-Sykes Fighting Knife with a 7 inch blade, was found concealed in Goozee's car. Goozee's injury was later determined to be self-inflicted.

Subsequent offences

On his release from Broadmoor in 1971, Goozee relocated to Hawksmoor Road, Stafford, Staffordshire, and took up employment at the nearby General Electric Company works. In 1973 he was imprisoned for theft and "going equipped for theft."[12] In 1977 he was dismissed by GEC when fellow workers, who had learned his identity in 1975, refused to work with him because of his previous conviction and his aggressive behaviour.[6] Around this time he was imprisoned for possession of an offensive weapon after threatening a police officer with an iron bar.[6] In 1982, by which time he had moved to Stonydelph, Tamworth, Staffordshire, Goozee was convicted of wounding a neighbour after stabbing him with a Stanley knife, and was sentenced at Stafford Crown Court to 18 months imprisonment and recalled to his life sentence.[12][13] In 1985 he supported a campaign for the return of capital punishment and "volunteered to meet the hangman to take the punishment originally prescribed for him for the murders of 1956."[6]

Goozee was released again in 1993, aged 70, and relocated to Chatham, Kent where he was provided with sheltered housing. It was here, on 25 December 1995, that Goozee lured two girls aged 12 and 13 into his home where he gave them alcohol and then indecently assaulted them. The attacks came to light after the girls contacted ChildLine, a telephone counselling service for children provided by the NSPCC.[14] Goozee was tried at Maidstone Crown Court in December 1996 where the jury cleared him of the rape of one of the girls but found him guilty of indecent assault.[15] Mr. Justice Gower sentenced him to 6 years imprisonment and said that Goozee's "horrifying" record should be considered if it was felt he should be released in the future.[12] Predating the newspaper's July 2000 campaign for Sarah's Law, the News of the World highlighted the case as an example of why the government should allow controlled access to the Sex Offenders Register, so parents with young children could know if a sex-offender was living in their area. One of the girls' mothers said: "He was put into the community by the authorities, and none of the parents around here knew that he was a child killer. When I found out what he had done in the past it made me feel physically sick. We could have been burying our kids instead of just trying to rebuild their lives after an horrific ordeal. I hope he rots." The second mother said: "We should have been told this 'sweet old man' was really a child murderer."[14]
Intimate Relations

In 1996, a black comedy film called Intimate Relations and based on Goozee's murders, was released. Starring Julie Walters and Rupert Graves, the film sympathetically portrayed Goozee as a "forlorn young man trapped in a love triangle." Lydia Leakey's surviving daughter Margaret Haywood criticised the filmmakers for attempting to "make a star out of the man who had murdered her mother and sister."[5]
