​​THE WEBER MOVIE COUNTDOWN

CLOSED CIRCUIT (2013)


Movie #3 of 2014 is the political thriller Closed Circuit (2013). It starts off slow and complex but well worth the wait as Eric Thal and Rebecca Hall (a personal favorite) are two English barristers who are defending a suspected terrorist who blew up London's Borough Market. It's complex because only one lawyer can see classified evidence that is needed for the defense. And it gets good when it is suspected that the alleged terrorist has ties to MI5 (the British version of the CIA). Both leads are excellent and Jim Broadbent is, as always, marvelous as the attorney general who knows much more then he says. And a cynical ending of sorts completes the package. Rent it
