The true story of a British Intelligence whistleblower who uncovered an illegal UK-USA spy operation exposing members of the UN Security Council of proposing blackmail to push support for an invasion of Iraq in 2003. Journalists published the leaked documents in the London news and dashed any chance at a UN resolution in support of war. Both the agent and the journalists suffered legal repercussions for their actions.
Starring Kiera Knightly, Matt Smith, Ralph Fiennes, Matthew Goode, and Indira Varma, this is a 21st century morality tale about freedom of the press, of information, and of personal safety. Director Gavin Hood (Rendition) again turns his lens toward government corruption in times of war.
