Excellent movie based on the true story of a whistle blower behind the legality of the Iraq war. Similar to Snowden movie, but following the path of Kathryn Gunn in the UK. Provided a new perspective of this period of very recent history

Great acting, very good plot, never a boring scene in the film.

Slick film that tells an important story. Keira Knightly gets her teeth into a great part. We need to keep before us the lengths our state will go to keep us from understanding what is happening around us.
