What the Critics say
Tomatometer Official Secrets has a familiar structure and an obvious if worthy message, but rises on the strength of Keira Knightley’s powerful performance.
|Movie Review Query Engine|
Jeffrey M. Anderson True whistleblower story is flawed but effective; swearing.
Jim Judy As a result, and while not blown away due to some of the overall superficiality, I found Knightley’s character’s dilemma the driving force of what makes Official Secrets worth seeing.
