A Most Wanted Man  (2014)

An adaptation of a John Le Carré spy triller, starring Philip Seymour Hoffman.

Cert: 15; 121mins

Synopsis

When a half-Chechen, half-Russian, brutally tortured immigrant turns up in Hamburg’s Islamic community, laying claim to his father’s ill-gotten fortune, both German and US security agencies take a close interest: as the clock ticks down and the stakes rise, the race is on to establish this most wanted man’s true identity – oppressed victim or destruction-bent extremist?.  Based on John le Carré’s 2008 novel, “A Most Wanted Man” is a contemporary, cerebral tale of intrigue, love, rivalry, and politics that prickles with tension right through to its last heart-stopping scene.
