Official Secrets Trailer - Keira Knightley

When the United States decided to declare war on Iraq, it was because there was apparently evidence that Saddam Hussein had weapons of mass destruction that he could use to wreak havoc on the world. But as we’ve learned since then, it seems that intelligence might have been manipulated to force a war that didn’t need to happen. And the American people weren’t the only ones who were tricked by their government.

Official Secrets is a new drama that tells the story of whistleblower Katharine Gun (Keira Knightley) a civilian translator at the Government Communications Headquarters intelligence office in the United Kingdom, who learns that members of the UN Security Council were being spied on in order to force through the resolution for the US and the UK to tackle Iraq head-on. Risking her own life and freedom, she sets out to do what is right in the face of seemingly insurmountable odds, all in service of the greater good and the people of Britain. Watch the Official Secrets trailer below to see how that goes. Read More »

And this year, the number of movies attempting to decrypt the notorious Manson and his all-consuming influence has ramped up, with everything from shockingly offensive horror films to star-studded Quentin Tarantino dramas taking on the cult leader.

Charlie Says attempts to answer that question, examining the horrific Manson Family murders through the perspective of three of Manson’s most devout followers: Leslie Van Houten (Hannah Murray), Susan Atkins (Marianne Rendón), and Patricia Krenwinkel (Sosie Bacon). But despite the three women bringing this story to life from behind the camera — American Psycho‘s Mary Harron helms while frequent Harron collaborator Guinevere Turner wrote the script, and Dana Guerin produced — the film’s purported female gaze feels partially obscured.
