Movie propaganda

Single mother Collette McVeigh is a Republican living in Belfast with her mother and hardliner IRA brothers. When she is arrested for her part in an aborted IRA bomb plot in London, an M15 officer, Mac, offers her a choice: lose everything and go to prison for 25 years or return to Belfast to spy on her own family. With her son’s life in her hands, Collette chooses to place her trust in Mac and return home. But when her brothers’ secret operation is ambushed, suspicions of an informant are raised and Collette finds herself and her family in grave danger. A taut thriller from James Marsh (Man on Wire, Project Nim, The King) with brilliant performances by Clive Owen, Andrea Riseborough (Brighton Rock, W.E.) and Gillian Anderson.
