HOLLYWOOD, Calif. – Keira Knightley gives “one of her strongest performances” (Kenneth Turan, Los Angeles Times) as a real-life whistleblower in the “taut and provocative thriller” (Todd Jorgenson, Cinemalogue) OFFICIAL SECRETS, arriving on Digital November 5, 2019 and on DVD with Digital Copy November 26, 2019 from Paramount Home Entertainment.
Certified Fresh by Rotten Tomatoes®, OFFICIAL SECRETS reveals the true story of British intelligence specialist turned whistleblower, Katharine Gun (Knightley). From award-winning director Gavin Hood (Eye in the Sky), the movie features an incredible supporting cast including Matt Smith (“Doctor Who”), who portrays Martin Bright, the real-life investigative journalist who broke the stunning story, Matthew Goode (“Downton Abbey”) as one of Bright’s colleagues, and Academy Award® nominee* Ralph Fiennes as Gun’s determined lawyer.
In 2003, British intelligence specialist Katharine Gun (Keira Knightley) received a memo with a shocking directive: collect blackmail-worthy information on UN council members to force the vote for the invasion of Iraq. Unable to stand by and watch the world rush into war, Gun makes the decision to leak the memo to the press, igniting an international firestorm that would expose a vast political conspiracy and put Gun in harm’s way.
The OFFICIAL SECRETS DVD includes the film in standard definition, as well as a Digital Copy of the film in high definition.
