CFF: Official Secrets

15

Last shown on 17 October 2019

We are delighted to welcome journalist Martin Bright , the real-life Observer editor played by Matt Smith in the film, for a Q&A after the showing.

We are delighted to be opening the festival at The Light with Gavin Hood's Official Secrets, starring Keira Knightley, Matthew Goode, Matt Smith, Ralph Fiennes, Indira Varma, and Rhys Ifans.

In 2003, as politicians in Britain and the US angle to invade Iraq, GCHQ translator Katharine Gun leaks a classified e-mail that urges spying on members of the UN Security Council to force through the resolution to go to war. Charged with breaking the Official Secrets Act, and facing imprisonment, Katharine and her lawyers set out to defend her actions. With her life, liberty and marriage threatened, she must stand up for what she believes in.

The Cambridge Film Festival is presented by the Cambridge Film Trust, a registered charity with a mission to foster film culture and education for the benefit of the public, in Cambridge and the Eastern region but also throughout the UK.
