Shadow Dancer - DVD Review
Directed by James Marsh.
Well-acted but morose tale of an IRA fighter forced by British police to serve as mole and betray her comrades planning a terrorist attack. Andrea Riseborough, perhaps best known currently as Tom Cruise's "wife" in Oblivion, gives Mirielle Enos a run for her money in how to remain interesting while glumly staring into space. And I get a kick out of seeing Game of Thrones alum pop up anywhere else. In this case, Aiden Gillam (Petyr Baelish) is the boss of her IRA group.
You have to be in the right mood for it, as it doesn't really break new ground.
