A very intriguing film - Undercover review by RR

Spoiler Alert
28/07/2021

Superb acting all round but particularly Sophie Okonedo and Adrian Lester. Plot quite convoluted and not always easy to follow, with time jumps from present day to 1996, though these were easily identified. Gripping watch and it got better and better. Being on a DVD the rewinds could be useful, also the Deleted Scenes filled a few gaps.

The story had layer upon layer of cover ups.

Basically it is very much about two things - race relations and cover ups in the police and beyond.

Definitely worth watching.
