James Marsh (Man on Wire) cements his reputation as one of Britain’s finest directors with this mature and gripping thriller. During an aborted bomb attempt in London, Collette falls into the hands of an MI5 officer, Mac, who offers her a deal: turn informant or go to prison. Fearing for her son’s welfare, she returns to Belfast where betraying family and beliefs she becomes a reluctant mole for British intelligence. As suspicion of Collette mounts and Mac takes increasing risks to protect her, both feel the net closing in.

‘An opaque, slow-burning but brilliant thriller.’ – Damon Wise, The Guardian
