Synopsis


Closed Circuit
Boy A director John Crowley teams with Dirty Pretty Things screenwriter Steven Knight for this topical thriller starring Eric Bana and Rebecca Hall star as two former lovers who encounter danger when they are both assigned to the same defense team in a high-profile terrorism trial. It was a typical morning in London when a powerful bomb exploded in the heart of the city. After the smoke cleared, sole surviving terrorist cell member Farroukh Erdogan (Denis Moschitto) was quickly taken into custody. As preparations for his trial begin, however, the government's plan to use classified evidence to prosecute the suspect leads the Attorney General (Jim Broadbent) to appoint Special Advocate Claudia Simmons-Howe (Hall) to the case. Claudia's unique position as a government-approved defense lawyer ensures that she can review the top-secret evidence, and advocate for full disclosure during the inevitable "closed" session portion of the trial. Once Claudia has reviewed the evidence, however, any communication with the defense team and the defendant himself is strictly forbidden. Later, When Erdogan's lawyer dies just before the trial begins, Claudia's driven ex-lover, attorney Martin Rose (Bana), takes his place. Realizing that their previous affair could jeopardize their involvement with the case, Claudia and Martin vow to keep the relationship a well-guarded secret. In time, however, Martin's exhaustive investigation reveals evidence of a shocking conspiracy that threatens to consume them both. Ciarán Hinds and Julia Stiles also star. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi

    While very well cast, Closed Circuit is a ridiculous film with almost no believable aspects to it's plot. The villians are obvious and poorly scripted despite mostly good preformances from the actors. Riz Ahmed is especially good in his role, but the action sequences are so poorly done and much of the dialogue is so silly that it saps the thrill right out of this thriller. Too bad because it is an interesting story to start with. I expected a much better film.

    Great movie, but a thinker. If you want to mindlessly watch a movie don't watch this... But if you're looking for a very good thought provoking movie don't pass this up!

    Had the potential to be a great film but the rushed plot and cardboard characters take away from the final product.
