Any Good?

These real newspaper whistleblower dramas can be a little long and hard work, but happily, this keeps your interest throughout.

Great production values and a great story that had me flip-flopping on who I was sticking up for but by the end was happy and uplifted with the conclusion to the sorry tale.

Knightly carries the film throughout, ably assisted by a mix of good acting talent. A really good Political thriller.

MGN Rating 7.5/10 IMDB rating 7.4/10 Metascore (Critics) Rating 6.3/10
