"Wired" is a superbly intense and wonderfully directed British movie in three episodes with each episode running about an hour. The story is mainly set in a very "high teck" bank in modern London. A single mom that is financially strapped, Louise Evans (fabulously acted by Jodie Whittaker) is promoted; however there are "strings" attached to the promotion coming from some very unsavory criminal types that want her to get them access to a very big account in order that these criminals can divert some of the money from that account into their own accounts. In doing so she will, of course, be paid a huge amount of money. At first Louise refuses but finally relents because she is in desperate need of money for her and her daughter that she adores. As a result she becomes entangled with a group of very nasty thugs that want her to do even more for them in order for them to "run" more scams.
What I really liked about this film is that it is very difficult to totally trust any of the characters. All seem to have the potential of being a criminal including the cop that rescues Louise and wants her to work "undercover" for the police force in order that the thugs that have recruited her can be caught, I was at all times questioning the true motives of this cop.
Not only is "Wired" wonderfully directed with outstanding scripts, it is greatly acted by all. I really thought Toby Stephens (of "Cambridge Spies") was marvelous as the rescuing undercover cop and Laurence Fox (of "Inspector Lewis") was fabulous as a very nasty thug. In fact, all of the acting in "Wired" is fantastic. I was greatly entertained by this movie.
