Official Secrets

Oscar nominee Keira Knightley stars in the true story of Katharine Gun - British intelligence specialist and ultimate whistleblower - from acclaimed direct Gavin Hood (Ender's Game, Tsotsi).

Intelligence translator Katharine (Knightley) receives an accidental email outlining a blackmail plan by the US to swing the UN Security Council on the matter of going to war with Iraq. Leaking the details to The Observer, Katharine soon realises that more than just her job is now at risk.

With an impassioned performance from Knightley and a gold standard array of British actors: Matt Smith, Ralph Fiennes, Matthew Goode and Rhys Ifans, Hood's feature illuminates a little-known name whose actions should have had larger consequences - and an ordinary woman thrown into very extraordinary circumstances.
