When a young IRA member is forced to turn informant for MI5, nobody expects the disastrous chain of events that is about to unfold. Adapted by Tom Bradby from his own 2001 novel, this outstanding thriller from Oscar®-winning director James Marsh (Man on Wire, Project Nim) boasts outstanding central performances from Clive Owen and Andrea Riseborough as the main protagonists caught in a complex web of political intrigue, set against a deeply insightful depiction of pre- peace-process Belfast.
