OFFICIAL SECRETS
Thursday 12 December 2019 at 2.30pm (Subtitled) and 7.30pm

Keira Knightley, Ralph Fiennes, Matt Smith

In 2003 a GCHQ translator receives an email requesting compromising details on UN representatives so they can be blackmailed into voting for the Iraq war.  Horrified, she engineers that email onto the Observer’s front page.  Katharine Gun (Knightley) is prosecuted and her Turkish husband’s deportation hastened.  She has only worked intermittently since.  Neither her revelation nor one million people marching that year derailed the war. Keira Knightley is excellent in Gavin Hood’s (Eye in the Sky) unmissable whistleblower thriller.

2019 | Dir Gavin Hood | 112min |  UK  USA

★★★★ “Keira Knightley shines as a very British whistleblower” – Peter Bradshaw, The Guardian

The programme will also include our current BRIT School Showcase film Liberté (PG, 4 min). This Year 13 film is directed by Dora Paphides and takes inspiration from World Cinema.
