​The true story of a Katherine Gun, the GCHQ whistleblower who leaked information to the press about an illegal US National Security Agency spy operation designed to persuade the UN Security Council to approve the 2003 invasion of  Iraq. Starring  Keira  Knightley and an all star British cast (including Ralph Fiennes, Matt Smith, Rhys Ifans, Tamsin Greig, and Jeremy Northam), it is a story with ongoing resonance. As Gun shouts at Tony Blair arguing the case for war on the TV screen: “Just because you’re the prime minister doesn’t mean you get to make up your own facts.”

“A film that’s gripping, righteous, relevant, moving – in short, a very good yarn that just happens to be true”. (i news)
