Official Secrets

Dir. Gavin Hood. UK/USA, 2019. 1h 52m. Starring Keira Knightley, Ralph Fiennes, Matt Smith, Matthew Goode, Indira Varma, Rhys Ifans, MyAnna Buring.

The true story of Katharine Gun, a British civil servant who leaked information to the press about an illegal NSA spy operation designed to push the UN into sanctioning the 2003 invasion of Iraq. Oscar-winning director Gavin Hood’s morally complex yet gripping human drama illuminates one of the important whistleblowers of modern times.

‘Knightley gives one of her strongest performances here, using her innate steeliness and presence to create a convincing portrait of a courageous zealot who believes in right and wrong in an almost biblical sense.’ Kenneth Turan, The LA Times

‘The film comes alive in the newsroom scenes, played with a tongue-in-cheek edge.’ Simran Hans, The Observer
