Official Secrets (15)
1hr 52m Biography, Drama Romance

Director: Gavin Hood
Stars: Matthew Goode, Keira Knightley, MyAnna Buring, Matt Smith.
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.
