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.
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.
