Bottom Line: It’s a hard to find movie (as it’s only in a few theaters around the country this week), but this superbly-acted, expertly-crafted, fiercely-intense, grown-up, political thriller is packed with layers of intrigue and suspense…and is well worth the search (even though the director is a creep).
