- Tony Blair: What we know, is that Saddam has this material.
- Katharine Gun: You don't know that. I mean, he just keeps repeating the lie. Just because you're the Prime Minister, it doesn't mean you get to make up your own facts.

Thought provoking and talked for hours after with friend who also saw it. Kiera Knightly and Matt Smith were great
great. a must see.
A capably rendered, urgently argued portrait in courage that never quite rises above curious-footnote status.
Director Gavin Hood gives the proceedings a rousing electricity, and he’s aided by a cast which leans into the story’s urgency and continued relevance.
Hood (Eye in the Sky), his co-screenwriters Sara and Gregory Bernstein and a seasoned ensemble of Brit stage and screen pros deliver a straightforward, solidly old-fashioned slice of real-life espionage, journalistic and legal intrigue that gets the job done in engrossing, clear-eyed fashion even if it lacks much in the way of stylistic verve.
