Intelligently constructed, well acted espionage drama finds most of its thrills and chills in the conflict between the modern, post-911 police state – in this case, the UK – and a couple of well-meaning individuals who get caught in the gears. Eric Bana and Rebecca Hall play public defenders assigned to the case of a Turkish immigrant (Denis Moschitto) on trial for the terrorist bombing of a London public market. Things go wrong when they discover the defendant, instead of belonging to a terrorist org, may have connections to MI5, the secret British intelligence agency. Adding to the tension is a fine supporting cast: Jim Broadbent, Ciarán Hinds, Riz Ahmed, Anne-Marie Duff, and Julia Stiles. The topical screenplay is by Steven Knight (Eastern Promises), ably directed by John Crowley (Is Anybody There?, Boy A) (96 min.).
