Flick Advisor (comments from our film promoters)

Very good. Intense thriller.

An excellent turnout for an excellent film.Tom Hanks was superb as was Mark Rylance, and the whole film kept you on the edge of your seat, with the intriguing storyline.

Excellent film. Quite long at 2 hrs 22 mins. but gripping throughout.
