From the producers of TINKER, TAILOR, SOLDIER, SPY comes the new international thriller CLOSED CIRCUIT. Following a mysterious explosion in a busy London market, the police swoop in, a suspect is detained, and the country prepares for one of the most high-profile trials in British history. Two exceptional lawyers with a romantic past step into a dangerous web of secrets and lies, and when evidence points to a possible British Secret Service cover up, it’s not just their reputations but their lives that are at stake. The film stars Eric Bana, Rebecca Hall, Julia Stiles, and Jim Broadbent.
Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes
The movie is low-key but each scene is packed with information. Full understanding demands full attention.James Berardinelli, ReelViews, 08.29.2013
The lawyers are supposed to be former lovers, but the film doesn't allow the leads to display any chemistry; likewise, it doesn't generate any suspense from its tried-and-true conspiracy premise.Ben Sachs, Chicago Reader, 08.29.2013
Sharp ensemble work ups this thriller's intelligence quotient.Lisa Kennedy, Denver Post, 08.30.2013
