Official Secrets Movie Review


Keira Knightley returns with this new political thriller ripped straight from the headlines. Knightley plays Katherine Gun, a British intelligence agent who learns of a memo from the US and British government to illegally gather information to justify beginning the Iraq War. After much debate, Gun decides to leak the memo through journalist Martin Bright (Matt Smith) and The Observer. However, this draws the attention of the British government to launch an investigation to find the whistleblower. Will they find her? Will she buckle under pressure? Allen and Justin give the final report on whether this is an investigation worth pursuing or a wild goose chase.



STARRING: Keira Knightley, Adam Bakri, Matt Smith, Ralph Fiennes, Matthew Goode, Rhys Ifans
