The Sedona International Film Festival is proud to present the Northern Arizona premiere of the audience and critically-acclaimed new thriller “Official Secrets” at the Mary D. Fisher Theatre. “Official Secrets” features an all-star ensemble cast including Keira Knightley, Matt Smith, Matthew Goode and Ralph Fiennes.
Nothing is more dangerous than the truth. She risked everything to stop an unjust war. Her government called her a traitor.
Based on world-shaking true events, “Official Secrets” tells the gripping true story of Katharine Gun (Keira Knightley), a British intelligence specialist whose job involves routine handling of classified information. One day in 2003, in the lead up to the Iraq War, Gun receives a memo from the NSA with a shocking directive: the United States is enlisting Britain’s help in collecting compromising information on United Nations Security Council members in order to blackmail them into voting in favor of an invasion of Iraq.
Unable to stand by and watch the world be rushed into an illegal war, Gun makes the gut-wrenching decision to defy her government and leak the memo to the press. So begins an explosive chain of events that will ignite an international firestorm. While exposing a vast political conspiracy, putting Gun and her family directly in harm’s way.
