Where loyalty meets resolvePhoto: Bleeker Street Media

4 Stars (Great)Why I Saw It: Always game for a true story, especially one where David takes on Goliath.
What I Thought: Though the methodical nature of planning an assassination can’t be avoided, somehow the film never quite picked up the momentum it needed, though once it did, there was little stopping it. Nevertheless, it’s a beautiful portrait of ordinary people rising to the occasion and showing the world their mettle. Quite unforgettable. (And it’s nice to see Jamie Dornan keeping his career intact. 😉 )
