Official Secrets

Keira Knightley is whistle-blower Katharine Gun in this political thriller co-starring Ralph Fiennes and from the director of Tsotsi.

"Based on the book The Spy Who Tried to Stop a War, Official Secrets tells the true story of British secret-service officer Katharine Gun, who during the immediate run-up to the 2003 invasion of Iraq leaked a top-secret National Security Agency memo. The memo — which exposed an illegal U.S.-U.K. spying operation against members of the United Nations Security Council — proposed blackmailing smaller, undecided member states into voting for war."
