Official Secrets Trailer Featuring Keira Knightley


eOne has revealed the trailer for Official Secrets, the dramatic thriller directed by Gavin Hood and starring Keira Knightley, Ralph Fiennes, Matt Smith, Matthew Goode, Indira Varma, and Rhys Ifans.

Based on world-shaking true events, Official Secrets tells the gripping story of Katharine Gun (Keira Knightley), a British intelligence specialist whose job involves routine handling of classified information. One day in 2003, in the lead up to the Iraq War, Gun receives a memo from the NSA with a shocking directive: the United States is enlisting Britain’s help in collecting compromising information on United Nations Security Council members in order to blackmail them into voting in favor of an invasion of Iraq.

Unable to stand by and watch the world be rushed into an illegal war, Gun makes the gut-wrenching decision to defy her government and leak the memo to the press. So begins an explosive chain of events that will ignite an international firestorm, expose a vast political conspiracy, and put Gun and her family directly in harm’s way.

The R-rated film will be released by eOne in the UK on August 23rd and by IFC Films in North America on August 30th.

Official Secrets was written by Gregory Bernstein, Sara Bernstein, and Hood. The producers are Ged Doherty, Melissa Shiyu Zuo, and Elizabeth Fowler.
