KA Shadow Dancer Rating 4 out of 5


  • James Marsh


  • Andrea Riseborough
  • Clive Owen
  • Gillian Anderson
  • Aiden Gillen


Andrea Riseborough delivers a finely calibrated performance as a single mum whose experience with the British Army in the 1970s has her taking up arms with her fantatically Republican brothers. However, when MI5 nab her trying to plant a bomb on the London Underground, she faces a near impossible choice - does she face trial for terrorism and lose her young boy...or does she turn informant on her own flesh and blood? After an esteemed career as a documentary-maker (Man On Wire, Project Nim), James Marsh turns in a chillingly compelling chronicle of British intelligence machinations and the last violent strikes of the old IRA.
