Being a lawyer is tough work these days. Being a lawyer who is defending an accused terrorist? Yikes. Such is the plight of Eric Bana and Rebecca Hall in “Boy A” director John Crowley’s political/conspiracy thriller “Closed Circuit”. The two play lawyers who uncover some kind of conspiracy involving the British Government and terrorism. Whew! At least it’s the British this time. I just naturally assumed somehow the CIA would get dragged into this somehow. At least, that doesn’t appear to be the case according to this first trailer for the movie.
Other than that, it looks like a decent thriller. Rebecca Hall is always watchable (and way underutilized in “Iron Man 3” if you ask me), and Eric Bana, well, he’s alright, I suppose.
In this international thriller, two ex-lovers, Martin (Eric Bana of “Hanna”) and Claudia (Golden Globe Award nominee Rebecca Hall), find their loyalties tested and their lives at risk when they are joined together on the defense team in a terrorism trial.
Starring Eric Bana, Rebecca Hall, Riz Ahmed, Jim Broadbent, Kenneth Cranham, Anne-Marie Duff, Ciarán Hinds, and Julia Stiles.
Going to trial this August 28th.
