Based on a true story and an event in history which was highly unnecessary, this film speaks about the courage and bravery of one woman who took it upon herself to leak classified information.
Keira Knightley is convincing in her role as whistle-blower Katharine Gun, supported by a host of talent we have seen and admired in shows and movies; Ralph Fiennes, Matt Smith, Matthew Goode and Rhys Ifans.
I like to walk into a movie without knowing anything about it, which helped greatly this time. To be told about this fact unfolding as film was not only a revelation but a relief that someone tried to do something about it.
A tense and well-paced film which needs worldwide press and release.
