Synopsis: Set in 1990s Belfast, an active member of the IRA becomes an informant for MI5 in order to protect her son’s welfare.

Release Date:  May 31, 2013

Thoughts: In the last month I’ve become a big fan of star Andrea Riseborough after catching her in two strong performances: as an investigative news reporter in Disconnect and an icy company woman going toe-to-toe with Tom Cruise in Oblivion.  So I’m particularly interested in seeing her take the lead in this political drama involving the IRA in the early 90’s.  Aside from Riseborough, there’s the usually strong Clive Owen and Gillian Anderson who has parlayed herself away from her The X-Files fanbase by taking on some nicely flawed characters.  Director James Marsh has helmed several notable projects (winning an Oscar for the documentary Man on a Wire) so I’m excited to see what his latest offering amounts to.
