Movie this Month: Official Secrets (2019)
Keira Knightly and Ralph Fiennes lead a world-class ensemble in the gripping true life political thriller about a women who risks everything to stop an unjust war. Katherine Gun, the British whistleblower who uncovered U.S. efforts to dirty-trick the U.N. into approving the Iraq War, is an appealing figure whose findings should have been scandalous enough to unseat two governments. They did not; the Iraq War was launched anyway. After four years, 150,000 to a million were dead, including thousands of U.S. and British soldiers. Gun was a translator who received a memo she eventually shared with the British press — an apparatus that, like the U.S. press, took a notably non-skeptical view of the “weapons of mass destruction” line both U.S. and British power players fed the world in its quest to unseat Saddam Hussein.
