Official Secrets. Paragraph Review.

A strong British cast star in this very solid but extremely televisual drama dramatising the case of Iraq war Whistleblower Catherine Gunn (Keira Knightley.) and some of the journalist who took on her story (led by Matt Smith.) A solid and engaging script make up to the fact it looks like a 9 p.m. ITV TV movie. This is somewhat more weird as director Gavin Hood’s previous dialogue heavy drama Eye In The Sky did have a certain amount of visual style although that film did have a wider variety of locations (and is very underrated in general.) This film is solid but if you see it and enjoy it I would highly recommend tracking down a copy of that film.
7/10.
