Experienced TV writer Poliakoff returns to film with a thriller confected from a tale of pre-World War II appeasement among the English ruling class. A fine cast underpins the drama, including David Tennant, Jenny Agutter, Bill Nighy and Julie Christie. 'A far more subversive film than its Brideshead Revisited-style patina of nostalgia first suggests ...Driven by a tremendous performance from Romola Garai...[who] captures brilliantly her character's mix of defiance, incomprehension and, eventually, terror.' (Geoffrey Macnab, The Independent)
