Official Secrets (Netflix streaming):

The true story of a British whistleblower who leaked information to the press about an illegal NSA spy operation designed to push the UN Security Council into sanctioning the 2003 invasion of Iraq.

Well, and I must say this, Keira Knightley actually passes for an actress of some ability. That’s a plus. ;) Overall, the movie is very interesting on how events unfolded. Reading up a little on it, it didn’t seem like they strayed from the facts they knew, and frankly, they didn’t have to; the story was that crazy to begin with. Movies like this that show the processes of journalism, government, operations…what they go through, all the back channels, how things really get leaked…this one was a good one for that.

Recommended watch, but falls a tad short of a “must watch.”
