Official Secrets



A British whistle-blower is charged under the official 'secrets act' for leaking a sensitive memo to the press in the lead up to the 2003 invasion of Iraq.

"Official Secrets" is a gripping political drama that tells a true story. Tension is carefully built and maintained throughout this dialogue-driven effort, with hardly an action scene to be seen. This is a tale about morals and integrity; and whatever your political leaning, there is no denying the importance of the story. We're asked to consider the price of truth in the face of power and then wonder what that might mean today. Shhhh.
