When the CIA discovers one of its agents leaked information that cost more than 100 people their lives, veteran operative Henry Pelham (Chris Pine) is assigned to root out the mole from among his former officemates at the agency’s Vienna station.
His investigation takes him from Austria to England to California, where he is reunited with his one-time colleague and ex-lover Celia Harrison (Thandiwe Newton). The pair are forced to blur the lines between profession and passion in this riveting tale of global espionage, moral ambiguity, and deadly betrayal.
With a runtime of 101 minutes, the movie is produced by Mark Gordon, Steve Schwartz, Paula Mae Schwartz, Nick Wechsler, and Matt Jackson.
The movie’s cinematography is by Charlotte Bruus Christensen and it is edited by Mark Eckersley. The music is by Jon Ekstrand and Rebekka Karijord.
Steinhauer’s book is officially described as follows: “From the author of New York Times bestseller The Tourist…
“Six years ago in Vienna, terrorists took over a hundred hostages, and the rescue attempt went terribly wrong. The CIA’s Vienna station gathered intel during those tense hours, assimilating facts from the ground and from an agent on the inside.
“So when it all went wrong, the question had to be asked: Had their agent been compromised, and how?
“Two of the CIA’s case officers in Vienna, Henry Pelham and Celia Harrison, were lovers at the time, and on the night of the hostage crisis Celia decided she’d had enough. She left the agency, married and had children, and now lives in idyllic Carmel-by-the-Sea.
“Henry is still a case officer in Vienna, and has traveled to California to see her one more time, to relive the past, maybe, or to put it behind him once and for all. But neither of them can forget that long-ago question: Had their agent been compromised? If so, how?
“Each also wonders what role tonight’s dinner companion might have played in the way the tragedy unfolded six years ago.
“All the Old Knives is New York Times bestseller Olen Steinhauer’s most intimate, most cerebral, and most shocking novel to date.”
