In 2003, British intelligence specialist Katherine Gun comes across a memo through which the United States tried to enlist Britain’s help in collecting compromising information on United Nations Security Council members in order to blackmail them into voting in favor of the Iraq War. Gun decides to leak the memo to the press, setting off a chain of events that will expose a vast political conspiracy and put Gun and her family directly in harm’s way.

Der Film kann sich nicht entscheiden, ob er Enthüllungsstory oder Betroffenheitsdrama sein will, und macht dann irgendwie beides. Keira Knightley weint oft. Einziger Lichtblick in dieser unfokussiert erzählten Whistleblower-Story ist Ralph Fiennes, dem man seine Anstrengungen als Verteidiger ansieht -- und dem verdienterweise die Schlussszene gehört.
