    Интересный фильм, но очень сложный. Актёрская игра хорошая. Драма хорошая. Фильм одноразовый.

    Official Secrets is a blatant piece of propaganda that attempts to rewrite history and deify the liberal media and their "whistleblower" allies. But if you can get past the politics, it's a pretty engaging drama. The film follows an antiwar British intelligence analysis who leaks a top secret memo in an attempt to prevent the 2003 invasion of Iraq, and is subsequently charged with treason after being caught. Starring Keira Knightley, Matt Smith‎, Matthew Goode, and Ralph Fiennes, the casts is quite impressive and delivers solid performances. And the writers do a good job at building suspense and tension. The dialog however, is rather poor and is preachy as all get-out with sanctimonious speeches about whistleblowing and the usual liberal antiwar rhetoric ("Blair lied," "illegal war," blah, blah, blah). Yet while it's a far cry from an objective depiction of events, Official Secrets is a fairly solid legal drama.

    Captivating. Loved every second of this film. This movie, which is based on a true story, kept my attention from the beginning to the end. Amazing performances by the whole cast, but Keira Knightley really shines in this film. She should have been nominated for an Oscar for best actress. The compelling story and great performances make this movie one of the best of the year. Highly recommended!

    Thwarted by Keira Knightley, a below average comedian, the film is an interesting testimony for future generations.

    Telling a poignant message that needs to be shared, Official Secrets is a solid biopic anchored in the performances of its talented cast. Keira Knightly shines in this role and it's mostly her that makes the sluggish sequences bearable.

    The movie makes a compelling argument, mainly thanks to great acting from Knightley.
