Shadow Dancer

The drama of a young mother's act of betrayal during the last days of the Irish Troubles comes together with measured intelligence and artfully apportioned suspense in Shadow Dancer.""""
-Justin Chang, Variety
Un thriller haletant, aux situations et dialogues tendus à l'extrême! Les acteurs principaux sont impeccables.

The story centers around single mother Collette McVeigh -- a Republican living in Belfast with her mother and hardliner IRA brothers. When she is arrested for her part in an aborted IRA bomb plot in London, an MI5 officer offers her a choice: lose everything and go to prison or return to Belfast to spy on her own family. With her son’s life in her hands, Collette chooses to place her trust in the MI5 and return home.
