-

Today we have a new Official Secrets trailer from eOne and you can check it out in the player below. 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.

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.

She risked everything to stop an unjust war. Her government called her a traitor.

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.

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