Official Secrets (15)
Dir: Gavin Hood
Cast: Keira Knightley, Matthew Goode, Ralph Fiennes
UK/US, 2019, 112 mins
A whistleblower risks everything in order to do what she thinks is right — even if it ultimately doesn’t make any difference. Keira Knightley is persuasive as Katharine Gun, a British GCHQ employee who in 2003 leaked a sensitive document in the hopes of preventing her country from invading Iraq — a decision that did nothing to stop that war but found her facing imprisonment. A grippingly entertaining political thriller that pushes all the right buttons.
