This thriller is extremely well-written. The film is quite daring. You of course know going in that the leaker failed to prevent the second Iraq war. In the opening scene, just a single shot of Kierra Knightly, you learn that her character has been charged with breach of the official secrets act. But you don't know how she'll plead or whether she will be convicted. The casting is terrific, and Knightly easily carries the film. She gets an assist from Ralph Fiennes, who plays one of her lawyers, in the second half. If you really did oppose the Iraq War back in 2002-03 and you did not know W and Blair were lying, this film will belatedly given you confirmation. Even if you were for the war at the start and then later realized you had been lied to, you will, I think, find this film well-worth watching. As I write, the only public person to condemn the war and the regime change wars that followed is Tulsi Gabbard, a congresswoman who enlisted in the war and served two tours in Iraq. The only dove running for President happens to be in the military. I say this only to show that the film continues to be timely.
