Rating: 4/5 -- While it'll do nothing to restore trust in the august bodies that rule the land, it's a pacy, palm-clammying watch. Full Review

3 stars out of 5 -- [T]here’s no doubting the continuing relevance of the topic on the table.

[Fiennes] delivers a fine moment of utter disgust at the government’s naked corruption in the film’s very last scene. Ending on that note feels right.

Product Description:

British secret-service officer Katharine Gun (Keira Knightley) risks her life to stop the 2003 invasion of Iraq by becoming a whistleblower. She decides to leak a top-secret memo outlining a plan between the U.S. and U.K. to blackmail smaller swing vote members of the United Nations Security Council into voting for war. Gun finds herself in over her head when the British government comes after her and her Muslim husband (Adam Bakri). Directed by Gavin Hood. Based on the book "The Spy Who Tried to Stop a War" by Marcia Mitchell and Thomas Mitchell.
