Johnny Worricker (Bill Nighy) is hiding out from his work at MI5 on the tax-exile island paradise 'Turks and Caicos'. Trouble comes knocking when an encounter with a CIA agent (Christopher Walken) forces him into the company of some dubious American businessmen. Claiming to be on the islands for a conference on the global financial crisis, Worricker soon learns their shady activities extend far beyond luxury hotels. When one of them turns up dead, it's their financial PR (Winona Ryder) who seems to know more than she's letting on. But will she help Johnny come to an understanding of what these men do and why they're here? As evidence linking them to Prime Minister Alec Beasley comes to light, Worricker must act quickly if he is to survive.
Making Of featuring Interviws with Cast and Crew including David hare, Bill Nighy, Christopher Walken, Winona Ryder, Helena Bonham Carter, Rupert Graves, Julie Hewlett, Malik Yoba and Producer Celia Duval
David Hare writes and directs a mean spy film. His spy dramas are so different from the Bond genre, lower budget and I believe much more real. There is much less action and much more subtle plot. I note that Ralph Fiennes is credited, his role is a fleeting cameo. Bill Nighy is the main character credited 4th! What's going on? Not a thriller by any means and of course a blossoming romance but otherwise interesting.

Intelligent fim, for once.

Old school film, that means you have to listen to what they are saying, and no excuse, because they actually deliver the lines in a recognizable form!
Lot of good folk in this little film. Walken, as always, is a delight. Hathaway is just great, and far above Bill's masculine weight, but have to imagine he has hidden potential. Ralph is deeply devious.
Great set of 3 films, and this one is the best. How they managed to get 5 top actors in one little film is a gem.............
